The Future of Sport
Stream Leader: Dr. António Vicente, Assistant Professor, Department of Sports Sciences, University of Beira Interior (UBI), Portugal.
Thinking about the future has always been difficult. But in times of great transformations and ruptures like the ones we live in, it becomes even more painful and complicated. However, it is in the middle of the whirlwind that errors are harder to fix and have higher costs. Sport, a universal and pluricultural phenomenon, has a huge expression in any society nowadays, but it also has deep and serious weaknesses. It also has competitors that would like to occupy its space and privileges. Returning to Greece, the land of origin of one of the most successful forms of sport structure, dominant and very imitated, to discuss what we want and, above all, what we do not want for the future of sport, has undoubtedly a great symbolic value. Reconstructing and preparing the future, we must not forget the past, which will not be repeated, but which has a more than emblematic importance for the lessons it leaves and for the roots that consolidate wills. In the same way, it would have made sense to seize the opportunity of the debate and the example of history to try to create a think tank capable of keeping the discussion on a theme as important as the future of sport that we want. This is the challenge of this panel. To think about and debate the future of sport.
