World congress

THE WORLD IS FACING A DIRE PHYSICAL INACTIVITY EPIDEMIC,

rendering today’s kids as the first generation to have a life expectancy shorter than their parents.

As the leading, global Sport for All and physical activity umbrella organisation, TAFISA is tackling this challenge head-on, and aiming for an “Active World 2030”. The 25th TAFISA World Congress will be a pivotal moment in the effort to overcome physical inactivity, as it will bring together representatives from over 100 countries in an interactive and open environment to discuss, debate and design the best path toward giving the next generation back those precious years of life.

Along with opportunities to network, learn and share, the Congress will see the launch of TAFISA’s “Mission 2030: For an Active World”. This Mission will pave the way to influence people, policy and practice to reintroduce physical activity as part of our daily lives the world over by 2030.


En route to our Active World 2030, the Congress will explore sub-themes encompassing:

  • The Yin-Yang of Sports – Grassroots and Elite: how the seemingly contrary divisions of sport and physical activity are actually complementary
    and interdependent.
  • Building Strong and Good Governance: designing and implementing robust, transparent, effective and ethical processes in Sport for All.
  • Peace and Collaboration: Sport for All as a tool to create and nurture meaningful, peaceful and collaborative relationships between nations,
    organizations and individuals.
  • Making Sport for All “Sexy”: marketing Sport for All and physical activity to attract the right sponsors and supporters.
  • Next Generation = Active Generation: providing early positive experiences for kids to encourage physical activity as a way of life for their
    generation, and those to follow.
  • Building the Member Network: how to create and nurture meaningful relationships to expand member networks for organizations and
    individuals.
