Educational days Umeå 18-19 April 2018

Dr Dean Kriellaars was the main course leader for the programs. Dean is from Canada’s Manitoba University and is one of the world’s leading experts in physical literacy, which we choose in Sweden to call for movement (or understanding of movement).

Several of the courses were formed for the “EMÅ project“, which is Change the Games, a new pilot project in Umeå, which will start in the districts of Ersboda, Mariehem and Ålidhem. Educators, athletes and parents in these areas therefore had a head start for these programs. The pilot project was made possible by the SISU Athletes and was conducted in collaboration with the Umeå municipality’s leisure and school administration. This was the next step on the journey to Umeå as a “moving society”.

These training days were conducted with the support of Västerbotten County Council.
