Climbing higher: Sport and active recreation in Wales

E-mail Print

'Climbing higher' sets out a clear, radical and inclusive vision for the future of sport and active recreation in Wales for the next twenty years. Our Nation has a small population with a deep sense of community and familiarity. As a small, smart nation, we have the capacity to make a real improvement to the lives of the people in Wales. We have a natural landscape perfectly suited for this agenda and we are proud to share it with the world. But we must embrace it for ourselves much more than we have managed in the past. We have the potential that can provide more great sporting triumphs on the biggest sporting stages of the world as other small nations do but we must be clear on how we achieve this.

The essence of this strategy is to maximise the contribution that sport and active recreation can make to well-being in Wales across its many dimensions. Because sport and active recreation can contribute across all these dimensions, this integrated strategy has multiple, complementary objectives which span the key areas of health, economy, culture, society, environment and Wales on the world stage.The background and context to these key areas are discussed in this strategy.
