The Government will organize the next April 26, 27 and 28 congress 'La Igualtat en Joc' with which it is expected to contribute knowledge, interaction and learning to promote women's sport in Catalonia. This year, experts in the field of gender and sports of recognized Catalan, national and international prestige will reflect on the challenges and tools necessary to guarantee equal opportunities in access and sports practice.
The congress, held at INEFC, organized by the General Secretariat of Sports and Physical Activity, with the coordination of the Departments of the Presidency and Equality and Feminism, aims to give visibility and recognition to women's sport. In addition, it is celebrated in a context of feminist transformation that is being experienced at all levels.
Given the importance that sport plays in the social sphere, the Generalitat promotes the congress to encompass the support actions, both economic and visibility, that the Catalan executive is carrying out to favor the growth and promotion of women's sport in all facets and fields.
The contents and meeting spaces are structured in three main axes: the public sector, the associative sector and the commercial and communication sector. Around each one of them, a program has been prepared in which there will be presentations, dialogues, workshops and spaces for interaction.
The conclusions drawn from all the activities that will be held during the three days that the congress lasts will be used to prepare a White Paper that includes the work carried out in support of women's sport and to define new actions to improve and promote it.
The meeting will begin on April 26 at 3pm with the opening ceremony, chaired by the Minister of the Presidency, Laura Viladrà i Pons, the president of the Catalan Women's Institute, Meritxell Benedí y Altés, the general secretary of Sport and the 'Physical Activity, Anna Caula i Paretas and the director of INEFC, Eduard Inglés Yuba.
