Registrations Open for Sport Summit

The INAS Global Games provides the ideal backdrop for people around the world to join global leaders and key influencers in the world of inclusion.

An international line up of sport experts addressing the topic Inclusion – What Matters in the Future headlines the International Sport Summit, held at Brisbane’s iconic Suncorp Stadium, which precedes the 2019 Brisbane INAS Global Games.

“This Summit is an amazing opportunity to collectively and enthusiastically address the importance of inclusivity in sport. The INAS Global Games are a beacon for encouraging athletes to shine on the athletics fields with the focus on their immense ability,” says Robyn Smith, CEO of the 2019 Brisbane INAS Global Games.

“This is a gathering of like-minded sporting leaders from around the world all lobbying to increase inclusive pathways for athletes at all levels. Their challenge for sport to be inclusive of all, will be important in determining the future of the movement,” adds Smith.

President of the International Paralympic Federation, Andrew Parsons from Brazil joins the founder of the UK Frost Included, Stephen Frost and Professor Jennifer McTavish from the University of Ryerson in Canada in challenging the Sports world to look at new and inventive initiates allowing greater access for all to sport.

Kate Palmer, CEO of Sport Australia and Lynne Anderson, CEO of Paralympics Australia will add their experience of the Australian sporting landscape as well as a number of leading speakers sharing their experiences in creating opportunities for those with a disability.

After listening to presentations from a wide variety of presenters including athletes and coaches with disabilities, delegates will be challenged to use the information and discussions from the two days and be involved in determining what key steps and actions can be taken to improve sports inclusion. These outcomes will form the basis of a communique to monitor change leading to the next INAS Global Games event.

Registration for the two-day Summit is now open and with a limited number of participant spaces available, interested applicants should book early.
