  11. 11 Towards #Sports21 - Agenda21 applied to Sports, Development and Peace
What is the link between Sports and the 17#GlobalGoals? 
What event can make war mongers stop killing for a moment? 
  1. When the UN secretary General and the world leaders speak out how outrages it is that ... ? No. 
  2. When do they stop? When their team is about to score a goal, the Olympic Games and some World Championship. 
  3. Those are 3 sports events. So why is the Olympic or Panathlon flame at the Global Festival for the #GlobalGoals? Or even at the General Assembly at the UN? 
Fair enough: if you are not from within the sports landscape. Who do you turn to to further your goal with input from the sports landscape? What is the logo that people from the non-sport world would recognize that signals there are people present who understand what is the link between Sports, Development & Peace? Visa versa: what is the logo you can use to signal as an actor in the sports landscape there is someone in your organisation they can turn to, who is open to support your sustainable efforts?
These are some of the questions we took back from the annual GlobalGoals festival 21-25 march 2018 at the United Nations in Bonn.

So, who do you turn to? Answer: 
  1. We hope you know the https://www.un.org/sport/content/why-sport/sport-and-sustainable-development-goals - we support their efforts and help bridging the sports landscape with the actors in the 17#GlobalGoals and Agenda21, the UN Calendar of Observances.  If they don't have time, resources, to talk to you/to help you further, then come here to this open alliance and wiki: #Sports21.
  2. #Sports21 - a 1-stop growing knowledge alliance of actors from the sports landscape to further your goal with all elements from the sports landscape and visa versa to promote the 17#GlobalGoals in the landscape of sports itself and e.g. develop a sort of quality manual to make your sports activity more sustainable, i.e. in line with the 17#GlobalGoals logical framework, Agenda21 and the UN Calendar of Observances!
Sports is not 1 of the 17 GlobalGoals, but is a transversal - cross-cutting player: The Goals with a link to sports that immediately jump out: 

  1. #GlobalGoal3: Good Health and Well-Being - think: HEPA - Health Enhancing Physical Activities
  2. #GlobalGoal4: Quality Education - think: HEPA - Health Enhancing Physical Activities
  3. #GlobalGoal5: Gender Equality - Can you imagine no gender equality & sports? Think the toolkits in every club on “Undesirable Behavior”. 
  4. #GlobalGoal6: Clean water and Sanitation - Can you imagine no clean water & sports? 
  5. #GlobalGoal7: Affordable and Clean Energy - Can you imagine no affordable energy & sports for lighting yr field at night or to broadcast the Games? 
  6. #GlobalGoal8: Decent Work & Economy Health - think: Dual Career Mgt. 
  7. #GlobalGoal10: Reduced Inequalities - Think: Sports, you know any better way to link different layers of society than sports? 
  8. #GlobalGoal11: Sustainable Cities & Communities - Congratulations for all the non-sustainable cities & communities in raising so many fine IS-DAESH terrorist youngsters. How much is this war costing? - Think: Sports, you know any better way to link different layers of society, bring in values and fair-play, leadership development - know any better way to do that than sports? 
  9. #GlobalGoal16: Peace & Justice - Strong Institutions - There are 2 events that make even a terrorist stop killing: when their favorite football team is scoring a goal and the Olympic Games. Need we say more about Sports and Peace building? Who do you call? Sports21 is your one stop call partner for Sports link Development & Peace and the 17#GlobalGoals 
  10. #GlobalGoal17: Partnerships for the Goals - There are 2 events that make even a terrorist stop killing: when their favorite football team is scoring a goal and the Olympic Games. Need we say more? 


What is the problem:

#Sports21 - Who is where? :)



In 2018, #Sports21 was presented at the United Nations in Bonn, during the annual GlobalGoals festival.

How to participate? How to contact people in our alliance? Who do you call to further your GlobalGoal? Sports21 is your one stop call partner for Sports link Development & Peace and the 17#GlobalGoals,

Sports21 - Agenda21 applied to sector of Sports

At Sports21, we apply Agenda21 to the sector of Sports.  Agenda21 is the plan of action to help humanity make it beyond the year 2100.  This plan of action has been developed with the best humanity can bring forward and you can take part in it.  The Olympic Movement has done this exercise, which resulted in the Olympic21 - plan of action that helps make the Olympic Movement and the Games more and more sustainable.

What do we want?

  1. a culture of sports, a culture of health, a culture of health education, rapprochement of cultures, life long learning and sports.  
  2. Great results, but not at all costs, offering dual career management to top performers to get more of them, bring tranquility to them and their parents, prevent worries about later life career so they can focus even more and without worries and achieve even better results, and also be better ambassadors on the promotion of sports and healthy life-styles, attract better and more sponsors,
  3. supporting the celebration of Life & Humanity
  4. a culture of Peace - Culture21
  5. Supporting the 4 pillars of sustainability
    1. environmental sustainability, 
    2. economic sustainability, 
    3. political sustainability and 
    4. cultural sustainability.
  6. To create a logical framework that is useful for the thousands of mayors, people who have to or want to develop a policy for sports or a culture for peace and also use the role of sports for it.  This is the problem: wikipedia/Democracy_Index_by_regime_type 89% of countries / 86% of humanity lives in flawed democracies to full authoritarian regimes.  The few who manage to get elected in such regimes and want to break away; can those ministers, mayors, cabinet collaborators fall-back on a sort of quality manual what to do?  How do we get what is in the brains of the best of the best in sports / sports culture management into this practical manual? Where can they download templates, resources they and their staff can get to work with? 
  7. How can we make sure groups working on other pillars of human development, on other 17#GlobalGoals - they can get in touch with us - sports management specialists?  Because the others are having a LOT of difficulty or simply are NOT succeeding in their local Agenda21 or their 17#GlobalGoals.  Why are there refugees? Why are these people not playing sports with their friends?Something must have been going terribly wrong for a very long time.  Sports21 has a LOT to teach the groups responsible for that mess, for not doing their jobs or if they do their job, not achieving any results.  That is what Sports21 is all about: a practical logical framework with a manual, toolkits, resources to download or to easily obtain, so that our sector - the sports sector - can come in with its full potential and play its role for achieving - preparing the ground - for going after those 17#GlobalGoals.

What do we NOT want? 
  1. If you need drugs that will destroy your body or the bodies of your team, the whole pyramid of criminality you enable with it. Why not kill your competition? Such medals we don't want.
  2. A regime that thinks it will yield admiration from its own population and others by only considering the number of medals and prestigious sporting infrastructure.  That is making people awe in admiration to hide unsustainable practices.
  3. Wielding a sports program that considers athletes as products where they are disposed of as waste after their peak or if the training results in harm.  At Sports21, we have a policy for the post-career of athletes.  Just as taking care of your physical endurance, practising sports on a regular basis has a very beneficial effect on your intellect, the way you behave towards others and your family; being able to read, write, basic math, and all other skill that are normal for your peers, they will help you in being a better performer in sports.  Hence - in Europe - the Erasmus+ program pillar 4: Sports.  If this latter link won't work anymore, just google the key words.
  4. Prestigious infrastructures that came about hurting other pressing needs of society s.a. a good social infrastructure, decent pensions, etc. or coming about through money laundering and corruption, such sports infrastructures / sports cities we don't want.  More: Building21 - Architecture21.

Recap - What is Agenda21 - the plan of action to make humanity make it beyond the year 2100

Agenda21, is the name for the plan of action making sure humanity will make it beyond the year 2100.  To make it beyond the year 2100, intermediate goals have been set out.  Every 10 years, since 1972, the best of the best humanity can bring forward, gather in the "Earth Summits" to make up an intermediate status, to adjust Agenda 21 and set-out new goals.
- The 8 Millennium Development Goals, set out in 2000 and to be achieved by end 2015
- The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, set out end 2015 and some to be achieved by 2020, some by 2030.

History Sports21

  1. January 2018 - Nikolas Petropoulos - president of the European Regional Framework for Co-operation in Greece, points to Sven AERTS from the EU and EU Diaspora Academy - Brussels, to read-up in the Erasmus+ 2018 Call for Sports.  Sven AERTS has a lot of knowledge about the logical framework composed of Agenda21, the 17#GlobalGoals, the UN Calendar of Observances and the EU Capital Awards.  Reading through the proposals in the partner search tool of the Sports Call, and after making some phone calls to top players in the sports landscape - a.o. Panathlon International - Brussels Paul STANDAERT; he detects a huge blind spot: the sports landscape has no idea of the logical framework composed of Agenda21, the 17#GlobalGoals, the UN Calendar of Observances and the EU Capital Awards.  Sven's team - Patrick BENSEN sports psychologist with double nationality Norway - Canada posts a proposal on Sports21.  The Sports 2018 call deadline is on April 4.  Sven is invited to participate in the 2018 http://globalfestivalofaction.org/ at the UNO in Bonn from wednesday to friday 21-23 april 2018 and asks the participants why they don't use sports to communicate the Global Goals.  The audience turns quiet and Sven announces the launch of #Sports21 - Agenda21 applied to the sports landscape and the 1 stop association linking Sports with Development, Peace and the 17#GlobalGoals; #Sports21, a celebration of Sports, Life, Humanity, Fairplay, Healthy lifestyles and a culture of Peace.
