Description

2017 Conference: European Healthy Stadia Network is pleased to announce that its next conference will be held on Thursday 27th April at the iconic Emirates Stadium, London – home of Arsenal Football Club.

This will be the fourth international conference held by Healthy Stadia, and will celebrate 10 years of the European Healthy Stadia movement. The conference is now considered the principal symposium and networking space for professionals involved in the cross-cutting fields of sport and health promotion, but will also be of interest to those working in CSR and sport, stadia management and sustainability in sport.


Key Themes: This edition of the conference will have a specific focus on the growing interaction between academic research, policy and practice in the field of Healthy Stadia, with many presentations underlining the benefits of partnerships established between research institutions, clubs/venues and governing bodies. The conference will be structured around plenary presentations and two sets of parallel sessions covering a wide range of cross-cutting themes relating to health and sport, including:

  • Physical activity interventions
  • Healthier catering options
  • Tobacco control and alcohol policies
  • Mental health and wellbeing interventions
  • Active travel and active spectatorship
  • Obesity and weight-loss interventions
  • Sports sponsorship and health
  • Research partnerships
