How does sport influence society? Is it an economic or political driving force? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in Barcelona between 8 and 10 March, at the second Global Sports Forum, a discussion platform that will turn Barcelona into a sports capital.

Over the three days close to sixty specialists and representatives from the world of sport, hailing from more than fifteen countries, will be sharing their experiences, to reach the best conclusions for setting up new sporting projects during the year. This year the organisers have decided to reduce the number of speakers, which last year stood at around a hundred and sixty, to address the issues in greater depth and rigour.

This big international debate will centre on eight issues structure along four general areas: new technologies, large sporting events, sustainability and youth in sport.

Participants will analyse the relationship between sport and education; philanthropy and co-operation; culture and creativity; health; geopolitics; the sports industry and large sporting events. All delivered through a series of lectures and small work groups.

A new feature this year is the creation of the Global Sports Forum Barcelona Trophies, an award for the best sports initiatives of the year. The aim of the awards is to highlight those projects that best illustrate the eight themes addressed at the conference.
