Organized by the Qatar Schools Sport Association (QSSA), the members of the ISF (International School Sport Federation), chaired by Laurent Petrynka, will gather from 18 to 19 March 2015 in Doha along with experts to draft the Vision 2030, which represents the major development of the ISF and school sport.
ISF is ambitious and should have a vision, looking for the unexpected, innovating, inspiring and pushing boundaries to make things happen. It is this dynamic that the major players are gathered around the Vision 2030.
Two intense days during which the agreement was orchestrated around 9 topics : international relations, education, social responsibilities and ethics, school sport, girls and women, communication and digital tools, ISF events, equality in school sport, marketing, sponsoring and finances, health, and legal aspects et statutes.
Interaction between states is not limited to the high political area but also low political area such as social cultural areas. Considering that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has 202 members’ states, even more than the number the number of UN member states which totals 192, it is obvious that international sport is now an arena of international politics and diplomacy.
We all have a responsibility to contribute to school sport and have a social responsibility towards the pupils. Sport has the potential to change life by developing policy that deliver tangible and lasting results in the school sport or ISF competition we work in. Through sport and education we can help them in a way that no one else can. It’s an opportunity to make a huge contribution to the lives of young people academically , family , based on the values of equality , freedom, emancipation and self-confidence.
In continuation of this agreement, the ISF will produce a white paper made of concrete recommendations and proposals for all institutions in charge of school sport and education.
