More about the webinar series
Current lockdown measures in the UK include limitations and restrictions on outdoor and group exercise, although, in parallel, exercise is generally encouraged for physical and mental health.
In this webinar series, we explore ethical considerations in relation to exercise in the UK during the implementation of Covid-19 social distancing measures. Topics include (but are not limited to): Risk mitigation with regard to catching and/or spreading the virus, or putting oneself at risk of (other) injury, disease, or medical condition; Social signalling and provocation; Stigmatization; Fairness and solidarity; Responsibilization; Risk assessment; Mental and physical health impacts of outdoor activity and sedentary behaviours.
The sessions include short presentations from guest speakers, but will be heavily focused on discussion between attendees. The sessions will later be posted online to stimulate public debate.
Participation across disciplines is encouraged and very welcome!
The final session of this series will take place on Thursday 4 June 2020 from 3-3.45pm
