Deeply convinced of the importance of sport for the community and young people, the Neva Foundation organized a conference "How to fulfill your potential through sport?" in partnership with the Sport for Life Foundation.
This major event took place on March 25, 2013 at the Palexpo Centre in Geneva with the participation of high-level athletes who spoke about their personal experience and suggested their answers for the question in the title of the conference.
At the beginning of the meeting, speakers from the Ecole Polytechnique de Lausanne and the International Academy of Sport Science and Technology made a presentation on the study conducted thanks to the Neva Foundation which showed that sport support is beneficial for the young and for the cities, with examples of some big American and European cities.
The presentation of the study was followed by a debate chaired by the journalist and former television presenter Jean-Philippe Rapp.
By co-organizing this conference, the Neva Foundation wished to raise awareness of the importance of sport and to promote physical activity in our society. The conference was intended for politicians, top executives, patrons and for those wishing to make a positive contribution to the sport infrastructure improvement and to the promotion of sport and physical activities to young people.
