Active Fusion Conference 2020

The Active Fusion Conference 2020 will focus on the power Physical Education has to improve mental and physical well-being.

Doncaster and locations across the UK are fighting against an epidemic of obesity and poor physical and mental health in the young. We want the Active Fusion Conference 2020 to bring together professionals in education to explore how we can inspire a healthier and happier generation together.

Delegates will be joined by a keynote speaker and industry experts, and they will hear from Active Fusion’s director about the work being done to improve physical and mental health in young people.  Everyone will be invited to take part in a number of workshops delivered by Active Fusion staff, including practical advice about how to help children and young people become more physically active.

Meet Keynote Speaker Andy Grant

Andy Grant is a former Royal Marine Commando and author of “You’ll Never Walk”. After having his leg amputated following an explosion in Afghanistan, Andy refused to succumb to his injuries and reinvented himself as an athlete and motivational speaker. He has since competed in the Invictus Games, climbed the highest mountain in South America and is the fastest one-legged man over 10K. We can’t wait to hear from his at the Active Fusion Conference 2020.
