Sport is facing a global revolution. Around the world, the speed of digitization is matched only by the pace of societal change. Today, sport requires a new mindset, one that transcends profits and addresses the expectations of the new generation. We are convinced that sport, in this context of transformation, can play a bigger role in addressing the major social challenges of our age. It’s time for action, to reconnect sport with its true purpose and redefine its role in society into a force for good and a force for innovation. At the intersection between the worlds of business, culture, media, politics and civil society, GSW curates, informs, connects and empowers a community made of all the actors who shape the future of sport. To do so, GSW offers a privileged platform and setting, which looks to federate the wider sports ecosystem beyond the traditional issues of the sports industry.
