Social impact of top-level sport in Wallonia - Brussels.

Project Details


Under the pressure of increased competition, national governments are investing more and more to achieve good performance in high performance sport at the international level. This has led to a global medal race, in which countries seek social return on their investments. High performance sport connects, inspires and develops. Through successes and athletes as role models, high performance sport makes people proud, provides social cohesion, can inspire and motivate young and old to play sports and train. It puts Belgium on the map, strengthens international prestige and stimulates the economy by linking sport and business.

Research has shown that when people are positive about high performance sport and see the personal and social benefits, they are more likely to support high performance sport policy and trust decision makers. policies. This is why this research aims to measure the social support for high-level sport among the population of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
