An important sport forum took place in Romania, organised by the Romanian Sports Institute.

Many speakers participated in this 3 day forum, including the IOC Member of Romania, President of Romanian NOC, Mr Mihai Covaliu, President of ARISF, Mr. Rafaelle Chiulli, CEO of FISU, President of R Sports to name a few.
AIMS President, Stephan Fox, was one of the keynote speakers on the power of sports talking about the Olympic spirit of mutual understanding, the spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play. The AIMS President highlighted the fact that it’s not about the Olympic or non-Olympic sports but it is about “sports”. Regardless where we are in the recognised sporting pyramid that we must work as one to use the power of sport for good. We must promote sport for social change, work united against any kind of discrimination, gender equality, inclusion, youth development, education and peace building.
