The Faculty of Sport, University of Ljubljana in Slovenia coordinates the European FitBack network, which supports monitoring child and youth physical fitness. As part of this project, we have developed a free online platform www.fitbackeurope.eu, which will be launched in five languages and offers practical tools.
Based on the experiences of countries that are already using national fitness monitoring systems, we have also devised a handy 10-step approach to establish your own monitoring system, supported by a graphical representation which we hope to encourage other countries to set up and maintain systems of their own.
Therefore, on Saturday, September 25, 2021, we will host free-off-charge the FitBack international conference at the Faculty of Sport, University of Ljubljana on this topic. The goal of the 1st International FitBack conference 2021 is to present results from the FitBack project and to introduce this new, collaborative network to policy-makers and professionals and scientists within the sport, education and public health sectors.
The FitBack conference 2021 will exhibit state-of-the art knowledge on how to establish a physical fitness monitoring system of their own, and will present an excellent platform for participants to learn directly from international experts on this important and timely topic.
The FitBack conference is one of few complementary events which take place during the Slovenian presidency to the Council of the EU. You are cordially invited to participate in all events listed below:
- Sep 23rd: various events during Slovenian national Sport holiday
- Sep 24th: Lifelong Physical Activity Conference
