About IPLC

The International Physical Literacy Conferences (IPLC) host global leaders who share their best practices and research to advance the worldwide physical literacy movement. They are designed to bring together all sectors’ experts, researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers. Every individual embarks on a physical literacy journey. By developing physical literacy across the lifespan, individuals empower themselves to be better at work, physical activities and having better mental health and happiness. This also empowers them to better engage with their community. Physical literacy is important to every sector, and each sector has a role to play in ensuring everyone has the opportunity to develop it. For more information on Physical Literacy please visit physicalliteracy.ca.
