Athletics Kenya wants stakeholders to provide suggestions on how to improve athletics nationally and globally, following last week’s launch of the Global Conversation for the Future of Athletics.

The suggestions are part of the World Plan for Athletics 2022-2030, which will be a guiding document for the growth and development of the sport within the next decade. The plan will comprise clear time-lines, measurable outcomes, roles and responsibilities as well as resources and budgets required.

And as such AK is calling on athletes, coaches, managers, fans, journalists, technical officials and administrators countrywide, to give their input.

For the next six weeks, interested persons can provide their insights online on(https://surveyhub.deloitte.co.uk/wix/p402654971948.aspx).

“Today, we are embarking on an unprecedented Global Conversation with all those who love our sport and want to have a say in its future,’’ World Athletics president Sebastian Coe said last week.

The survey is available in 12 different languages including English and Kiswahili and comprises of questions on the challenges and opportunities presented by athletics within different contexts, countries or member federations.

A draft plan developed from the suggestions of various stakeholders will be presented mid-year to the World Athletics Council for approval. Once rubberstamped, a final plan will be developed for distribution to member federations for approval in November 2021 during the biennial World Athletics Congress.

The initiative is being managed by the World Plan Working Group, which includes seven council members, led by Willie Banks, former triple jump world record-holder.
