French plan to build the sport as a right for all

 

La nuova ministra dello sport francese Roxana Maracineanu ha presentato un barometro nazionale delle attività sportive che sarà aggiornato ogni due anni

Secondo il primo barometro nazionale delle pratiche sportive il cinquantadue per cento dei francesi sopra 15 anni praticano sport almeno una volta alla settimana: la ricerca è sviluppata da Injep-Istituto nazionale della gioventù e dell’istruzione popolare e Credoc-Centro di ricerca per lo studio e l’osservazione delle condizioni di vita. La percentuale dei praticanti sale al 75% tra i 16-25 anni secondo un’altra indagine, presentata al Ministero dello sport dall’associazione UCPA. Se i giovani preferiscono il body building e il fitness, di fronte al calcio e alla corsa, sono la corsa e la camminata le più amate dai francesi (40%), davanti alle “attività di fitness” e alla palestra (32%), seguite da sport acquatici e nautici (27%).

“Questo barometro è uno strumento che ci permetterà di valutare la pratica sportiva dei cittadini francesi ogni due anni, non ogni dieci anni come prima – ha detto Roxana Maracineanu, ministra dello sport francese - Sarà una bussola per guidare le nostre politiche pubbliche e intercettare le popolazioni più lontane dagli sport, come le donne o le persone con disabilità”.

Nella sua tabella di marcia, l’ex campionessa mondiale di nuoto, diventata ministra dello Sport lo scorso settembre, si è posta l’obiettivo di coinvolgere tre milioni di praticanti in più, cercando di far muovere il 20% dei non praticanti che dichiarano di voler praticare uno sport. Anche il primo ministro, Edouard Philippe, ha parlato di “sviluppo di pratiche sportive per tutti, ovunque, per tutta la vita”. (per approfondire clicca qui)

La precedente ministra dello sport francese, Laura Flessel, durante il suo mandato ha lanciato un bando per la creazione di ”liv-lab”, luoghi in cui le persone che non sono abituate a praticare sport vengono incoraggiate a muoversi attraverso l’uso della realtà virtuale. La Flessel è stata anche coinvolta nella lotta contro la discriminazione: è stata protagonista insieme a dieci atleti di una campagna di comunicazione contro il sessismo, il razzismo, l’omofobia e lo stigma della disabilità. In un contesto inedito per lo sport francese, dove la nuova governance, insieme ad una politica di austerità, incoraggia una privatizzazione dello sport e dunque un rafforzamento delle disuguaglianze, la FSGT-Fédération sportive et gymnique du travail è molto attiva per rendere effettivo il diritto allo sport per tutti e sui temi della disabilità con numerosi progetti. In particolare a Saint Denis, banlieu di Parigi, ha messo a disposizione a persone con disabilità e ai giovani frequentatori del quartiere uno spazio sportivo gratuito. Questa iniziativa permette di avvicinarsi e di svolgere una pratica sportiva regolare e duratura alle persone del quartiere e non solo: una pratica che mette insieme persone con disabilità e senza, dando vita ad un incontro sportivo che alimenta le relazioni umane e supera le diversità, contribuendo alla costruzione di una società inclusiva e ugualitaria.

New ideas have old roots: Oddone Giovannetti

It never hurts to remember, in this case Oddone Giovannetti, one of the founders of the largest Italian Association of Sport for all (UISP9. He born in Correggio in 1924 and died a year ago. I want to remember a phrase that reminds us that the basic ideas for the development of human beings can be used regardless of the historical period.

“Free time is a fundamental right. The man who draws from his work just to live is not a free man, but he lives a purely biological life.”

The youth players’ rights

We are approaching the time when sport clubs began to organize their activities. The football schools  program the new year and in September the fields will be filled with children. Statistics say that half of the children chose football. In light of this, it is important to remind all those who work in football schools that children are not little adults and that it is not enough to work with the passion for football, you need a passion for the world of children, you had to know  what they think, how they think, what they can do. Especially you had to know how to deal with them. These fundamental principles from the “Charter of children’s rights and the” Charter of the Rights of boys in sport “should always be a reference for anyone involved in football or any other youth sport:

  • The right to have fun and play
  • The right to play sports
  • The right to a healthy environment
  • The right to be surrounded by people trained and competent
  • The right to follow adequate training to its rhythms
  • The right to participate in competitive age-appropriate
  • The right to practice sports in complete safety
  • The right to have the right timing of rest
  • The RIGHT TO NOT TO BE A CHAMPION

Vivicittà 2014, the run for all

Sunday is the day of Vivicittà 2014: The race for all. It’s the biggest race in the world because it takes place simultaneously in 45 Italian cities and 10 overseas. This is the 31th edition, which takes place about 12 km away and joining together has always been some of the fundamental human values ​​: the need for sport, environmental protection, international solidarity and to livethe historic town centers. These themes are present up since the first edition of the event organized by UISP and Franco Fava in a 1984 article published by Espresso already presented this way:

” This first edition of Vivicittà is not just a sporting event, even if the sporting and technical certainly not lacking today … do run 30,000 people is no longer a novelty. Distribute though so many runners in twenty different cities, starting at the same time, using as a backdrop the historic town centers among the most beautiful in Italy and make sure to compensate for the run times under the different difficulty of the route is likely to leave almost in disbelief … Surely in the great day of Vivicittà, no one can say that the Italians have finally put aside the bad habits of sports fan but not actives. Certainly no one can deny, however, that a new era is coming on the horizon and a more healthy and democratic sport mentality is close to establish itself for the good of all. THe cities will rise from twenty to forty and one day, perhaps due to Vivicittà , the run made ​​in Italy could be exported.”

Well these predictions have come true and to emphasize the value of sport as a right of all, without exception, the race will also take place in a number of Italian prisons but also in Osaka and Yokohama, in Bosnia in Tuzla and Sarajevo. In other dates will take place in Lebanon in Balbeeck and Sidon in solidarity with Syrian and Palestinian refugees. The fundraiser this year (1 € per participant) will be finalized in the project “Sport and Dignity” in collaboration with UNRWA – UN agency for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon to achieve 12 gyms for gymnastics, 12 spaces for volleyball and the training of trainers for these sports.
