Future-proof organisation of sports and exercise

Toekomstbestendige organisatie van sport en bewegen

A future-proof sports organisation is able to easily adapt to societal changes and personal needs. For sports clubs, this means, being open to multiple target groups in the community and making their offerings more flexible for example. For commercial providers, it means becoming increasingly socially engaged. 

To meet these diverse needs, a strong collaboration between sports providers, governement, business and citizens is necessary. Additionally, the framework must be well-trained to handle complex organisational and pedagogical challenges and provide sufficient quality. Sports and exercise can contribute to creating equal opportunities, combatting generational poverty, fighting loneliness and improving health. Sport is a context in which people develop their identity, gain self-regulating skills, learn to collaborate, build social capital, deal with setbacks and become active as a volunteer. The ambition is to organise sports in such a way that it meets the needs and provides sufficient quality for all target groups.
