Play the Game day in Brazil
The event took place in SESC Vila Mariana, one of the more than 30 impressive sport and culture centres run by this organisation in the São Paulo area alone.
On this page you will find various types of documentation from the day. Here, you can download presentations from the Play the Game day in Brazil and watch photos taken by photographer Roberto Assem during the seminar.
The Play the Game day gathered 85 journalists, academics, sports leaders, business executives and students and revealed a Brazilian appetite for more sports debate.
The following articles sum up the presentations and discussions of the day.
The debate was heated and the media repercussion remarkable when 85 speakers and participants met in São Paulo last week to discuss legacy of mega-events, lack of sports democracy, FIFA relations and the need for a national Brazilian sports strategy.
In the host country of the next FIFA World Cup and Olympic and Paralympic Games there are numbers saying that 72 percent of Brazilians are not doing sport, and that 62 percent of people over 16 years are physically inactive.
New ways of networking and increased awareness against corruption in sport may become the most important legacies of Brazil’s hosting of the biggest mega-events in the next four years.
