TAFISA's Mission 2030: "For a Better World Through Sport for All" is the guiding document for a global strategy to fight the worldwide physical inactivity epidemic.
Today, our people and our world face challenges and threats on a diverse scale never seen before - from climate change to civil unrest, non-communicable diseases, isolation, oppression, poverty, terrorism and the threat of nuclear war. These are not problems unique to any one demographic, geography, belief system or political status. These are global problems, faced by all of us; our friends, our neighbours, our families, our children. Without immediate and effective change, generations to come will not enjoy the world as we have done. The world they will live in will be a lesser world than ours. This is not only not fair, but unacceptable... and preventable.
Sport, physical activity, elite and grassroots sports, play, movement, traditional sports and games, leisure and recreational sports... Whatever you wish to call it, Sport for All has the power to make a change, to make the world a better place, to contribute to solving the world's problems like little else can. All people are made to play, and play, in all its physical forms, is understood by all people. It crosses boundaries of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, geographic location and physical or mental abilities, and builds bridges and bonds between people. It increases physical, mental and social health, reduces environmental and economic costs, preserves cultural diversity and creates peace. It is a basic human right, and a mighty tool to combat our greatest global challenges.
