The New Leaders Sport Leadership Education programme kicked off in Vilnius (Lithuania) from 21 to 23 January. A legacy project by Birgitta Kervinen, the 2017 winner of the IOC Women and Sport award, this programme is a joint effort coordinated by the Finnish NOC with the IOC, the EOC, the Lithuanian NOC, the Irish NOC and the NOC of Azerbaijan. At the first workshop, on the theme “Lead the change – Be the change”, the 30 participants from Europe, named “game-changers”, set realistic and tangible goals, to be followed by concrete action plans to transform the sports movement to be more equal, transparent and ethical. This programme, its three workshops and a closing conference are educating 30 participants to become game-changers over a period of one year. Concrete action plans will be designed on a personal and organisational level, bringing to life the IOC Gender Equality Recommendations and creating a culture of change in Europe. Full details here.
