The new Board of Directors aims to build a sport in accordance to the evolution of the new social, economic and cultural contexts in which we live, to the new demands, to the new emerging sports cultures and to be able to respond to the problems and imbalances that sport itself as an open system is generating.
From this philosophy we understand that the integrated sports community must work to address the changes that are continuously generated in sport through commercialization, the influence of new technologies, professionalization, the power of the media, the birth of great variety of new forms of sport, the growing significance of ecological problems, which extends to sport and the asymmetries of opportunities of those who interact in grassroots and federated sports.
Deepening our principles and postulates of integration, plurality, territoriality and solidarity, we have launched an auspicious Project that will try to address the needs and expectations of the Integrated Sports Community in a consensual manner.
For this reason, we undertook, jointly and in coordination with other sectors (Municipalities, Cooperatives, Mutuals, Confederations representing labor and the economy, civil, public and private entities), to work on building a new economic and social concept: SPORTS COLLABORATIVE ECONOMY.
From our perspective, we understand SPORT as a GOOD UNDER CONSTRUCTION, capable of articulating management models, fundamentally promoting sports associativism in its different areas (collective financing network, sports management and statistics, permanent training of human resources and development of programs of containment and health care). For this reason, we believe that the sports community cannot be marginalized from the constant changes and movements that occur every day, which include new entrepreneurs and structures of economic association in the sports field, for which we sponsor new strategies with the aim to resignify SPORTS as an INDUSTRY.
In this sense, as the highest authority on sport, we met with the authorities of the General Economic Confederation, who joined this management and development project, recognizing this paradigm shift in sport and expressing our commitment to join it.
From integration and pluralism, our goal is to continue working for new opportunities, respecting the development processes of each sports institution, building public and private policies, promoting responsible and supportive management models, deepening territorial work, generating spaces that guarantee the associativism as a determining factor of sport, understood as a social and economic good; always with the irrevocable commitment that all sectors can participate on a level of equality and respect.
