CGF Unveils Transformation 2022 Refresh
September 4, 2019
The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has unveiled the Transformation 2022 Refresh.
Transformation 2022 is the Commonwealth Sport Movement’s Strategic Plan from 2015-2022, with the refresh covering the period from 2019-2022 following the first four-year phase.
The plan follows detailed member consultation as part of the CGF’s Regional Meeting Programme which commenced following the conclusion of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
It also establishes a new strategic priority focusing on the Movement’s ambition to ‘Realise Collective Impact’ – focused on athletes and sport for social change – a defining differentiator for the Commonwealth Sport Movement.
This aims to empower and equip athletes as agents of change and advocates for integrity; provide support and opportunities for CGAs; contribute to truth, reconciliation and relief programmes and strengthen the contribution of sport in Commonwealth Cities. This new strategic priority also includes the future formation of the Commonwealth Sport Foundation.
CGF CEO David Grevemberg CBE said: “There really is no better place than Rwanda to strengthen and position Commonwealth Sport as a progressive leader in sport and social change, harnessing the power of sport as a catalyst to unleash our human potential and positively transform lives. The Transformation 2022 Refresh will ensure the Commonwealth Sports Movement is in the best possible position to capitalise on the opportunities and mitigate possible risks that lie ahead in a rapidly changing world.
“It is an important time to galvanise and drive the positive impact of sport on society which is why we have updated and launched an exciting new Commonwealth Sport Brand to keep pace with our ambition. This means we aren’t just unveiling a new logo and emblem but actually linking our narrative, positioning and meaning. It is about putting the emphasis back on our vision, our values and our athletes.”
