Workshop 1: Shared Value and CSR – Sharing of best practices
We need a new paradigm for business wherein businesses generate economic value by tackling society’s major needs and problems such as health, education and environmental degradation as a core value proposition. This broader notion of shared value can reshape the relationship of business to society and can legitimize business as a central partner in tackling society’s problems. As some sports have grown into businesses they also carry a much larger responsibility for society. In this panel we share best practice from business, which could be scaled up for greater impact in the sporting community.

Workshop 3: The role of media to promote ethics in sports
It is obvious that the media wields an incredible influence on the world, and some statistics show 30% of media space is dedicated to sports.
