Active World 2030 - Defining a New Horizon

The world is facing a dire physical inactivity epidemic, rendering todays kids as the first generation to have a life expectancy shorter than their parents.

As the leading, global Sport for All and physical activity umbrella organisation, TAFISA is tackling this challenge head-on, and aiming for an Active World 2030. The 25th TAFISA World Congress will be a pivotal moment in the effort to overcome physical inactivity, as it will bring together representatives from over 100 countries in an interactive and open environment to discuss, debate and design the best path toward giving the next generation back those precious years of life.

Along with opportunities to network, learn and share, the Congress will see the launch of TAFISAs Mission 2030: For an Active World. This Mission will pave the way to influence people, policy and practice to reintroduce physical activity as part of our daily lives the world over by 2030.

The Congress, to be held from 15th to 19th November 2017 in Seoul, Korea, will address the following:


“Active World 2030 - Defining a New Horizon”



  • The Yin-Yang of Sports - Grassroots and Elite: how the seemingly contrary divisions of sport and physical activity are actually complementary and interdependent.
  • Building Strong and Good Governance: designing and implementing robust, transparent, effective and ethical processes in Sport for All.
  • Peace and Collaboration:  Sport for All as a tool to create and nurture meaningful, peaceful and collaborative relationships between nations, organizations and individuals.
  • Making Sport for All "Sexy": marketing Sport for All and physical activity to attract the right sponsors and supporters.
  • Next Generation = Active Generation: providing early positive experiences for kids to encourage physical activity as a way of life for their generation, and those to follow.
  • Building the Member Network: how to create and nurture meaningful relationships to expand member networks for organizations and individuals.

TAFISA invites all its members, stakeholders, friends and Sport for All enthusiasts from around the globe to join us in creating an Active World 2030.

2015 TAFISA General Assembly

Host City, Seoul

Seouls history stretches back more than two thousand years, and it preserves Koreas past, present and future. It is a world-class city with a vibrancy flowing along the beautiful Han River. Seoul is known as a city of contrasts - from ancient palaces with centuries of history to high-tech skyscraper of steel and glass, from ancient texts dating back millennia to the highest rate of broadband Internet access in the world. Seoul is a place where the old and new exist in harmony. A city like no other, Seoul is a city that never ceases to amaze.


The Congress will be hosted by TAFISA member Sport for All & Culture Korea Association in the Gangnam, Seoul, a city that has pride in being the countrys centre of culture, art, fashion, beauty, information technology, education and finance. The Gangnam Style frenzy triggered by Korean pop star Psy has made people all over the world pay attention to Gangnam.


The official Congress Hotel will be the Lotte Hotel World. Besides, a wide range of hotels have been selected by the Organizing Committee in order to meet everyone’s expectations and budget. Everyone staying at a designated hotel other than Lotte Hotel World will be provided with shuttle bus service to the venue.




The registration can be done online on the official website of the Congress ( http://www.tafisacongress2017.com/appointments/ ). The registration fees are as follows:
