The ISF Convention emerged from the election of Laurent Petrynka. Convinced of the importance to build the future together, in a democratic spirit, all the members will be reunited from Tuesday, March 17th to Friday, March 20th in Doha Qatar.
The ISF Convention offers the opportunity to exchange, discuss and develop together the Vision2030 by drafting the first strategic ideas for the future of the ISF with ISF members, experts and authorities.
As Laurent Petrynka mentioned it in his New Year speech: "Our upcoming projects are not intended to erase the past, nor the present, but extend them to greater ambitions"
Workshops and plenary sessions on various themes in relation to world school sport development will make up the agenda. Some experts will take part to the taskforces in order to bring external ideas along with the expert of the ISF. Many members have already mentioned ideas and propositions to develop the ISF. This will be the moment for them to attend any of those workshops to share and examine their projects. Each member will be able to attend 2 workshops and all the plenary sessions.

The methodology of this Convention had been previously validated at the last Executive Committee in Rome, Italy on 28th October.
Each workshop will end up into five recommendations that will be approved by the Executive Committee in October 2015 and later on, will be adopted by the general assembly in July 2016. Moreover, a report book, addressed to all national and international federations, will be publically published in order to convey recommendations regarding school sport.
Furthermore the Convention will be the cornerstone of many projects; the first Gala of the School Sport Foundation along with the first meeting of the board of directors, followed with an Executive Committee.
