Equity for Children in partnership with the Arcor Foundation organized a conference on movement in childhood on October 15, 2015 at the Borges Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The event highlighted innovative experiences in public policies, at the school, community and regional levels, focused on enhancing and enriching the general public’s knowledge on the topic.

A round of presentations were given, featuring Victor Matsudo, representative of the Brazilian initiative Agita Sao Paulo; Fernando Concha Laborde from Sports Schools Programme in Chile; and, Gustavo Moreno, Program Coordinator of the National Programme of Physical Activity for Health in Argentina. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Alberto Minujín, Equity for Children Executive Director, on the regional experience of the Arcor Foundation’s Programme School in Movement, during the second part of the event.
