SPORT’S VALUES IMPLEMENTATION PROVIDES YOUTH WITH HOPE

Exceptional one day Meeting

REDISCOVERING BASIC SOCIETAL VALUES
SPORT’S VALUES IMPLEMENTATION PROVIDES YOUTH WITH HOPE


THE DISLOCATION OF THE SOCIAL BODY
Sport and athletes are the repositories of essential societal values
Governments must therefore appropriate these values and implement them to slow down or even stop the permanent destructuring of the social body.
Governments must ensure the promotion to each citizen, starting with youth, of the values conveyed by sport and invent the means for dynamic and effective action in this area.


WHAT IS SOCIAL COHESION ?
Social cohesion is the reality or even the intensity of the relationships that exist between the elements of a same societal structure. These are the links that connect the members of a group to each other on the one hand and to the group as a whole on the other.
The role of women inside the family and local communities is key to social cohesion as well as the practice of sport to social linkage
Consolidating social cohesion also means enabling structuring resilience in the aftermath of the pandemic 


THE RETURN TO TRUE VALUES
Social relations can only exist and flourish within the framework of spontaneous adhesion and operational respect for essential values which are (1) respect for others, (2) meaning and respect for oneself and of one's own dignity, (3) self-control, the implementation of (4) voluntary behavioral discipline, awareness and respect for (5) the importance of the social role of the other , (6) courage and determination in action, (7) sincerity, (8) modesty, sense of (9) honor and (10) respect for word and commitment
These values are now only carried by Sport whose role is essential in shaping minds and mentalities while the educational role of the family is disappearing and the school, in its traditional conception, is itself outdated.


TAKING ADVANTAGE OF SPORT TO REBUILD OUR SOCIETIES
Sport and athletes are the repositories of essential societal values
Governments must therefore appropriate these values and implement them to slow down or even stop the permanent destructuring of the social body.
Governments must ensure the promotion to each citizen, starting with youth, of the values conveyed by sport and invent the means for dynamic and effective action in this area.


OPERATIONAL VISION
A real and healthy practice of sport by youth, under the direction of knowledgeable, respected and competent professionals, is the essential component of a good formation of minds and appropriate social behavior.
Each education system must therefore be remodeled to give, within each school program, a really important place to the practice of several sports. 
During school programs, young people must be able to practice a real sporting activity on a daily basis while the schedules of other teaching courses are rearranged. This allows students to reach a good level of sports practice, to impregnate their spirit but above all to shape the framework of their group relations with their comrades, the first laboratory of social relations that they will face later. 
It is necessary to involve the National Sport Federations and the International Sport Federations to provide authority, quality control and a participation of selected athletes or former athletes whose role can thus take on its full value.
