Movement has the power to transform lives
Movement gives us strength and builds our confidence.
Through movement we are challenged to go further, push harder. It breaks down barriers both set for ourselves, and by others. When we’re moving, anything feels possible.
Movement is a human right
Everyone should have the right to move. To experience the transformative power of movement and all the incredible mental and physical benefits it brings.
Barriers to movement
Everyone should be able to experience all the incredible physical, mental and social benefits movement bring - whoever you are, however you move. But in our increasingly unequal societies, social, economic, and physical barriers stand in the way.
Sometimes, self-doubt holds us back. We lack the confidence and motivation to keep going because we fear judgement or failure. Because we believe that we can't.
Society also stands in our way. We face discrimination because of our gender, race or perceived ability.
Furthermore, the COVID-19 crisis has led to the closure of recreation centres and sports programs nationwide, making it even harder for many who depend on these safe spaces for their overall physical and mental wellbeing.
‘The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practising sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play’
International Olympic Committee (IOC) (BBC)
We are committed to inspiring billions of people to move more each year. We champion effort over ability and trying over winning.
Because movement empowers people to break barriers by enabling them to develop critical life skills such as teamwork and resilience. Movement builds confidence and teaches us how to overcome failures and adversities. Movement has the power to unit community and incite positive change.
