Dream, speak up and act! If you want to be a leader and create tomorrow’s sports culture you must definitely be part of the “New Leaders Sports Leadership Programme”.

Applications are open for the New Leaders Sports Leadership Programme. This is a joint effort coordinated by the NOC of Finland together with the IOC, EOC, NOC of Lithuania, NOC of Ireland and one more European NOC to be announced later.

The project is addressed to sport professionals who want to challenge themselves, improve leadership skills and are committed to implementing ideas into action. It is for those who want to promote and set good governance a priority, including equality, in the world of sport.

This education – three workshops and a conference – allow participants to become game-changers. In total 30 European participants will be selected, ideally 15 females and 15 males. Mentoring Champions will share their wisdom with the generation of New Leaders, and together shape the future of sport. Mentors will be experienced NOC, EOC and IOC sport leaders right from the top.

The European Olympic Committees will play a key role in showcasing and leading the way in educating future leaders. Based on experiences from Europe the New Leaders Programme will be implemented in other continents as well, creating a net of global Olympic game-changers.

Now it is the time to educate future leaders of sport. New Leaders need a platform to exchange ideas and practice their skills, with the support from the current leaders.
