About the conference

We would regrettably like to inform you that the conference at NIH 16-17th April is cancelled because of regulations regarding Covid 19 (the Corona Virus).


A majority of all children in the Nordic countries are members of a sport association. In this conference we like to focus on continuity and change in children and youth sport as well as similarities and differences between the Nordic Countries.

We welcome presentations on participation numbers in different groups, perceptions and values of children and youth sport and debated aspects of children’s sport.

In addition, children’s rights in sport and different aspects of talent identification can be discussed and problematised.

Furthermore, the conference welcomes presentations contextualising participation in sport against a background of leisure, migration and a changing society.

The conference starts at April 16th with a "Breakfast and panel", 8-9:30 AM, that is open for all. The presentations will be in both Norwegian and english. The breakfast and panel are free, but you have to do a registration.

At 10:15 AM the main conference starts, and you can register as a student (reduced prices) or as a ordinary participant.
