IFSC UNVEILS 2020-2028 STRATEGIC PLAN
IFSC Secretary General Debra Gawrych presented a long-term roadmap for the future of Sport Climbing today at the XVI IFSC Plenary Assembly.
The 2020-2028 Strategic Plan, which was revised after the postponement of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, is the final outcome of a process that covered most of the 2019 Sport Climbing season, with events such as the XIV IFSC Plenary Assembly in Tokyo (JPN), the National Federations Workshop in Arco (ITA) and the 1st Climbing Summit in Torino (ITA) playing crucial roles in the definition of the vision, mission and key objectives.
The IFSC’s Vision is “to make the world a better place through Sport Climbing,” while its Mission is “to grow the Sport Climbing community and to foster the furtherance of Sport Climbing worldwide.”
In addition, the IFSC will work “to effectively and efficiently govern, develop, showcase and promote Sport Climbing through sustainable events for athletes, Member Federations and key stakeholders.”
The IFSC’s Key Objectives for the 2020-2028 period are to:
- showcase Sport Climbing through events;
- develop Sport Climbing;
- strengthen membership and governance;
- increase IFSC brand awareness; and
- promote Sport Climbing globally.
