This public lecture will be delivered by Professor Paul Downward, Professor of Economics at Loughborough University, on Tuesday July 12th at 5:30pm. Timed to coincide with the UEFA Women’s EURO taking place in England this summer, the talk will discuss the wellbeing, health and social values of male versus female football in Europe.
In recent years, public policy has promoted sport participation across Europe because of benefits to health, social capital and wellbeing. This talk reports research that seeks to answer two questions connected with football in Europe.
- How does participation in different types of football affect male and female social capital, wellbeing, and health?
- What monetary values can be assigned to these effects?
This talk is free to attend and is open to anyone with an interest in the topic.
