PLEASE REGISTER HERE TO ATTEND THE SYMPOSIUM

 

We are excited to invite you to the closing symposium of the Sports in Prison, a Plan for the Future (SPPF) project.

Sports in Prison, a Plan for the Future’ is an Erasmus + project that focuses on the development of good sports programmes with a stronger connection between the ‘outside world’ and the world inside the prison walls.

The past three years, our collaborative partnership has been working hard to better understand sports programs in prisons, and in particular how these programs can contribute to social integration.

During the symposium the results of the SPPF project will be presented to an international audience. The results include the research publications, 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 the project results.
