The Barcelona Sports Institute (IBE) is committed to promoting the human rights of people with disabilities, under the Barcelona Sport Includes programme and through a system for equal opportunities with the rest of the population. 

Only too aware of the training needs in this area if education and leisure, the IBE is working in collaboration with the Institute for Educational Sciences and the Institute for Professional Development (ICE-IDP) at the University of Barcelona (UB), to organise, this coming 20 March, the First Conference on Good Practices in Sports Inclusion, under the slogan “Multiple disabilities and right to inclusion in physical education and sports leisure. Reality or utopia?”.

The goal behind this conference is to offer a framework for reflection on how full inclusion, without exception, proves to be crucial for transforming both the educational system and society. It is firmly committed to a limitless inclusive education, which brings together capacities in the natural group environment in an inclusive school and leisure – and therefore universal-design – model.

The conferences are aimed above all at Physical-Education and Special-Education teachers, sports and leisure expert educators, primary-school teachers, school and leisure directors and physiotherapists and Special Education support staff, among others.

Places are limited and allocated according to order of registration. Sign up to it!
