Women in Boardsports Lunch at ISPO


Its nearly ISPO time! Since a couple of years now Women in Boardsports gather during the ISPO in Munich to have fun and discuss hot topics concerning females in boardsports. The event is growing bigger every year and if you want to secure a place you need to hurry. Capacity is only 80 ladies and it is first come, first serve. Having had the pleasure to be invited to the last Women in Boardsports retreat in Saas Fee I can only highly recoment this inspirational gathering. Sadly I cannot make it this ISPO Monday but hope Alba keeps those of us who cannot attend in person informed via the website.

Tonight I am working at the opening ceremony of the 1st Winter Youth Olympic Games at the Bergisel Stadium in Innsbruck. 'It’s about facilitating intercultural dialogue and creating friendships among young people from around the world'. In this light I am wishing all participants memorable experiences and a joyful YOG 2012.

Migrants in Winter Sports


The first European seminar on "Involving Young Migrants in Winter Sports" is held in Innsbruck this week, just one day before the opening of the Youth Olympic Games. The seminars time table is packed with plenary sessions and working groups hosted by SPIN, the Sport Inclusion Network. Involving Young Migrants in Winter Sports aims to find a collective strategy on how to include ethnic minorities and immigrants in national winter sports.
