Date: November 2019
Location: Indoor stadium of the Centre sportif Yvon-Lamarche (Main Campus)
The university community was invited to discuss the values encompassing the practice of school-based physical activities with Jean-Luc Brassard.
First known for his freestyle skiing exploits, Jean-Luc Brassard now travels Quebec to promote the values of integrity and inclusion in sports based on his personal experience. According to him, these values are first acquired at school. This is why he stresses the importance of practising physical activities in school environments in a more inclusive and less competitive context, focused on adopting and maintaining a physically active lifestyle rather than performance and results. A discussion to be shared among all school stakeholders, parents, members of the community, and sports communities.
