Get involved

IAKS members and experts from all over the world are invited to submit their ideas for presentations or round table discussions as part of the congress programme.

The sports and leisure sector has been impacted massively by Covid-19, while we also need to respond to the challenge of climate change. Social, ecological and economical sustainability needs to be addressed in an integral way. Grass root and elite sport will face funding challenges for both public and private projects, as governments world-wide search for ways to recover from the pandemic.

Your submissions are kindly requested until 28 February 2021
