During a time of global uncertainty questions emerge on the relevance and resonance of global communities such as the Commonwealth, an association of independent sovereign states with a population of 2.2 billion people making up 30% of the world’s population. The Commonwealth Games is a unique, world class, multi-sports event which is held once every four years. It is often referred to as the ‘Friendly Games’. The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) is the organisation that is responsible for the direction and control of the Commonwealth Games.
With this back drop and an increased focus within the global sports industry for integrity, transparency and accountability, in this presentation David Grevemberg, Chief Executive, Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), will outline the current strategies being implemented by the CGF to address these challenges, enhance its relevance and promote its impact by upholding the CGF Vision: ‘Building peaceful, sustainable and prosperous communities globally, by inspiring Commonwealth Athletes to drive the impact and ambition of all Commonwealth Citizens through sport.’
