MOVE Congress 2015 starts with WHY, WHAT and HOW

The MOVE Congress 2015 opened in Copenhagen City Hall on 5 November with 200 delegates from five continents welcomed by Copenhagen Mayor of Culture and Leisure, Carl Christian Ebbesen, and three interconnected presentations drawing inspiration from bestselling business author Simon Sinek*:

Do you know your why? (by Mark Lowther from Cardiff Metropolitan University’s School of Sport), Do you know your what? (by DGI President Søren Møller) and Do you know your who? (by ISCA President Mogens Kirkeby).

“Over the next two days we will try to do our best to set up the Congress and meeting points for you to exchange your ideas and find the platform for your ‘how’. It does not come easily. It comes only if you ask and if you give,” Kirkeby said.

Copenhagen Mayor of Culture and Leisure, Carl Christian Ebbesen, said he was pleased Copenhagen could host this platform for stakeholders in sport and physical activity, hoping the delegates would use the street sport setting at the host venue GAME and the tours of Copenhagen’s most innovative facilities for physical activity as further inspiration for their work.

“I hope the MOVE Congress 2015 can help us discover new approaches to sport, physical activity and facilities, and rethink and develop what physical activity can be… It is not the name of the sport that matters; it is the number of people being physically active that really matters,” he said.
