Join the SPPF symposium on 15 December 2022 in Brussels

We are excited to invite you to the concluding symposium of the Sport in Prison, a Plan for the Future (SPPF) project where our toolkit will be introduced.

During the past four years, our collaborative partnership, funded by the Erasmus+ Programme has been working hard to better understand sport programs in prisons, and in particular how these programs can contribute to social integration. The SPPF project focuses on the development of quality sports programs for inmates, with a focus on providing a better transition between the world inside and outside the prison walls.

The results of the SPPF project will be presented to an international audience. The research publications will be presented, as well as the development, testing and implementation of the learning areas and the evaluation thereof. In addition, time will be made to present the toolkit and policy recommendations. The symposium will integrate interactive methods to provide information to the participants, and actively involve them to hear their perspective about ‘sport plus’, ‘plus sport’ and ‘through the gate support’ in prison.

Program:

  • Morning session (9h30 – 12h30): keynote speaker and project results

  • Afternoon session (13h30 – 16h45): interactive workshops (toolkit and policy recommendations) and closing debate

The final program will be communicated shortly.

Target group: The symposium is aimed at representatives from: 

  • The prison and probation systems

  • Policy (local, national, European, International)

  • Community and avocacy organisations

  • Education and research

  • Sport federations, clubs and organisations

The symposium is organised on 15 December 2022 at bel.brussels (https://bel.brussels)

The speakers will communicate in English, but translators will be available (English – Dutch).

Please register here to attend the symposium (no registration fee).

We are looking forward to meet you at the symposium!
