Sports21, a celebration of Life & Humanity, a culture of excellence for Peace


Welcome to the collaborative starting page. Interested in editing/writing/further developing this page? At the bottom, hit the "sign in" button.

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 more and more sustainable.

What do we want?
  1. Great results, but not at all costs
  2. a celebration of Life & Humanity
  3. a culture of Peace - Culture21
  4. a culture of sports, a culture of health, a culture of health education, life long learning and sports.  
  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: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy_Index#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.

Intro

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.
