TAFISA Mission 2030 and its Significance for Active Cities


The world is facing challenges and threats on a diverse scale never seen before – from climate change to civil unrest, non-communicable diseases, isolation, oppression, terrorism and even the threat of nuclear war with the Covid-19 pandemic on top of the list. These issues are universal problems. Without immediate and effective action, generations to come will not enjoy the world as we know it.

One of TAFISA Mission 2030 themes is “Active Cities” that have a key role and responsibility to promote physical activity in all places where people live, work, learn and play and can thus make more people physical active. Sport for All has the power to make a change and to contribute to solving the world’s problems like little else can.
