We are delighted to welcome you to our campus in Bø in Telemark where a beautiful scenery of forests, mountains and rivers, combine with a vibrant small-town to create an excellent setting for scientific engagement as well an exceptional opportunity for academic and social interaction. With a student community numbering 2,300 students, we are big enough to enjoy diversity, but small enough that you will not get lost in the crowd.

Sports and the environment – Policies, Values and Sustainability

The theme for the EASS2019 conference is Sports and the Environment – Policies, Values and Sustainability. The EASS2019 conference welcomes abstracts concerned with the main theme, but also encourages contributions from a wide range of topics within the sociology of sports.
