INTRODUCTION

PRESIDENT’S INTRODUCTION MOVING PEOPLE contribute to the integrity of sport

The slogan of ISCA is MOVING PEOPLE. This term represents both what we are striving to do and the kinds of people we are ourselves – moving people. It is also a term that connects our values, initiatives and advocacy, and is a central guideline when we collaborate both within our organisation and when we work with our partners. We strive to “say what we mean” and “do what we say”

I

strongly believe that saying what you are aiming to do and doing what you say you will do are what integrity is about, and integrity is one of the most important values and assets of sport. The problem is that the integrity of sport has been seriously challenged in recent years and 2016 was unfortunately not a turning point. On the contrary, 2016 showed that major high profile sport organisations do not contribute to the integrity of sport. This has severe consequences, not only for these respective organisations, but also for the general brand of sport. If the integrity of grassroots sport and recreational physical activity sectors is not protected, we will lose the positive perception whereby citizens and societies recognise and utilise the social, mental, physical benefits of sport. Over the last years, ISCA has engaged in good governance in the grassroots sport sector. Not because we believe that grassroots sport is particularly challenged governance-wise. But because we want to assist in developing and promoting proper governance in a sector which includes the most governing bodies, the most citizens (who are directly involved in its activities) and represents the majority of the sport sector’s economic impact. Three good reasons why the grassroots sport sector the most important sector in sport!

4

Cultural diversity is a strength – and integrity is a need Grassroots sport and recreational physical activity have developed differently throughout history and across the world. In some countries the sector has developed over decades – even centuries –and in others the concept is rather new. In some countries this citizens-based sector has its roots and organisational foundation in sports associations and clubs. But in many countries we are seeing new ways of organising and governing grassroots sport and recreational physical activity. Grassroots sport encompasses a cultural diversity and knowledge which we believe can be used as inspiration for the development of the sector. However, we depend on its fundamental values like integrity being protected. Right now not enough organisations are stepping up and contributing to safeguarding the integrity of sport. Let’s see if this will change in 2017.

Mogens Kirkeby ISCA PRESIDENT

A YEAR IN THE SPORTLIGHT 2016 was a big year for ISCA, our partners and members. We led 10 projects (new and ongoing), partnered in another 10, organised the second European No Elevators Day, and staged MOVE Week in Europe and Latin America with the help of our National Coordinators, MOVE Agents, members and Latin American Committee. And our activities made it into the “sportlight”: with 42 shares and 32 likes, the EU's tweet featuring the Commissioner for Sport Tibor Navracsics meeting the Journey of Hope cycling team in Kosice on 10 September was one of the year’s social media highlights. The following pages present more highlights from ISCA’s active year in 2016.

ACTIVEVOICE

© Flare Visuals

“The ActiveVoice project is about helping NGOs raise their game. What are the best ways to get your message out? What are the most effective ways of doing advocacy?” Randy Rzewnicki (pictured), ECF Health Policy Officer

To advocate for physical activity you need to raise your voice The ActiveVoice project aims to develop tools and resources that equip grassroots sport organisations with strategies for influencing physical activity policy and contributing to a more widespread implementation of the EU’s Health Enhancing Physical Activity (HEPA) Guidelines.

I HIGHLIGHTS IN 2016

SCA and our project partners see it as a need for civil society organisations to advocate more for physical activity and play a significant role in pushing the agenda forward by gaining support from their national and local stakeholders.

Kick-off meeting in Birmingham, UK. ActiveVoice collection of good examples published on the official website http:// www.activevoice.eu/examples/ Multi-stakeholder conference Moving Europe – Moving People in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

However, many organisations promoting grassroots sport and physical activity in the EU member states do not have the capacity to deliver advocacy, and many simply do not know where to start. The ActiveVoice project aims to help these organisations raise their voice and be heard. The project’s resources are being developed by a consortium of five European organisations and five national partners through case-by-case mentoring.

Together they will develop a toolkit for national and local organisations to use as a guide to what they can achieve and how they can approach other stakeholders to influence decision-making or enter into partnerships. The national partners will test the advice from the toolkit in their local settings next year. As part of the ActiveVoice project in 2016, ISCA held a one-day conference in Ljubljana together with partners from the PASS Project, FlashMOVE and Journey of Hope. The occasion was a rare opportunity for stakeholders across sectors, including the EU Sport Unit, to exchange perspectives and coordinate their efforts moving forward.

NEW ISCA PROJECTS

Integration of Refugees through Sport This year, ISCA, with funding from the Nordplus and Erasmus+ programme, has started working on two projects addressing a sensitive topic and vulnerable target group that has been the subject of great debate in Europe this decade: integration of refugees. The projects are bringing together experts from the Nordic countries, the UK, Italy and Germany to map and explore ways of integrating refugees into European societies through sport and physical activity.

PROJECTS

Project name: Integration of Refugees through Sport Project period: June 2016–May 2018 Co-funded by: Nordplus Adult 2016 Grant amount: €54,840 Partners: ISCA (project lead), Akershus Idrettskrets (Norway) UMFÍ (Iceland), Academy of Physical Education Ollerup (Denmark), SISU Västergötland (Sweden) The first project started in June 2016 and the partners have conducted an overview of good practices in refugee integration through sport in the Nordic countries and beyond, drafting a “Principles and Guidelines Manual” to share ideas on how to implement effective initiatives. The action has not only happened on a theoretical level. It has also moved into the field: from 17-21 October, international students from the Ollerup Academy delivered physical activity games at Nyborg Asylum Centre for families and Ollerup Asylum School for unaccompanied young men. A similar hands-on workshop has also taken place in Sweden and will continue in the other partner countries next year to help develop the project’s outputs.

Project name: Inclusion of Refugees through Sport Project period: September 2016– August 2018 Co-funded by: Erasmus+ KA2 Grant amount: €207,741 Partners: ISCA (project lead), Academy of Physical Education Ollerup (Denmark), SISU Västergötland (Sweden), StreetGames (UK), University of Kent (UK), German Gymnastics Federation (DTB, Germany) and UISP (Italy) The second project will expand the knowledge base beyond the Nordic countries to other European countries dealing with a large influx of refugees in recent years. It aims to enhance the capacity of the partner organisations to extend their already extensive offers of informal and non-formal learning opportunities to refugees. The project’s main intellectual outputs will include a Grundtvig video, an online learning resource, a toolkit and a networking platform, in addition to an expanded best practice manual.

“When we stopped worrying about working with refugees and started playing with them and having fun, the air became lighter. If I learnt something that week it is that sometimes all it takes to rehumanise us is a little dance.” Javier Mira, Mexico (Ollerup Academy of Physical Education) “We approached these people with love, smiles, and great positive energy. As a result, we received more love and smiles than we could have even imagined! … The adults were happy and relaxed, seeing their children and family having a great time without concerns, and most didn’t hesitate to interact with us. I really could see how powerful sport is for integration.” Santiago Villalobos, Portugal (Ollerup Academy of Physical Education) Read the full stories from the Ollerup students on the NowWeMOVE blog: https://blog.nowwemove.com/


NEW ISCA PROJECTS

MOVEment Spaces The MOVEment Spaces project is also an ISCA first. It ventures into the area of sport and physical activity facilities – but not traditional ones. Our new EU Collaborative Partnership of five European cities, five grassroots sport organisations and three expert oganisations is heading outside. We want to enhance innovation in the delivery of physical activity programmes in existing urban space facilities.

T

he project partners fall into three categories (in addition to ISCA as the coordinator):

Expert Institutions: Lokale og Anlægsfonden (the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities), International Association for Sport and Leisure Infrastructure Management (Slovenia) and DGI (Denmark)

Programmes, scale up

GRASSROOTS SPORTS Experience base Recommendations Networks

EXPERTS

Cities/municipalities: Birmingham (UK), Barcelona (Spain), Paris (France), Plovdiv (Bulgaria) and Wroclaw (Poland) Grassroots sport organisations: StreetGames (UK), Eurofitness (Spain), UFOLEP (France), BG Be Active (Bulgaria), V4Sport (Poland) and DGI (Denmark) The project partners will share their expertise in the project’s 3 focus outdoor spaces (Active Parks, Public Squares and Open Water Facilities) and 3 themes (Partnerships, Inclusiveness and Stakeholder Involvement). Part of the project, which will begin in January 2017, will be to establish and run an “Open Source Innovation Lab” as a thematic network of organisations working in the field. Physical activity in urban spaces will also be a central theme of the MOVE Congress in late 2017 as a platform for some of the first results.

MOVE Quality started in 2013 with the aim to help physical activity initiatives targeting hard-to-reach populations make a bigger impact. By its completion in October 2016, around 40 initiatives had gone through the 12-month MOVE Quality process, consisting of a series of development, improvement and evaluation phases focusing on: Theory of Change and capacity building: The theory of change process involved working with all organisations to map out and explore the social change they are looking to achieve (outcomes) and the assumptions underlying how their activities and strategies lead towards the outcomes. It was used both as a strategic review as well as a basis for conducting impact measurement (which includes monitoring, evaluation and research).

available to support these efforts (a SIM recommendation).

Social Impact Measurement (SIM): The SIM assessment was designed to establish a baseline understanding of the MOVE Quality partners’ internal capacities to carry out impact measurement, using the SIM standards as the reference point. It helped ‘co-create’, with the organisations, an initial capacity building plan that met their needs and addressed priority areas for further improvement, identifying the resources

All organisations allowed their progress and achievements to be externally evaluated, and committed to taking part in the activities that shaped the MOVE Quality development process.

2 016 IS C A A nnual Re p o r t - M O V IN G PEO PL E

Good Governance in Grassroots Sport (GGGS) organisations: This was a process to help sport leaders (political leaders and managers) better understand their role in good governance and to guide organisations in their desire and process of adhering to good governance in sport principles following ISCA’s GGGS Guidelines.

MOVE Quality and MOVE Transfer Project period: October 2013-October 2016 Co-funding: Coca-Cola Total project budget: €845,463.90


MOVE Transfer

26 national and international good examples transferred since 2013 When MOVE Transfer started in 2013, we aimed to scale-up and transfer good examples of grassroots sport initiatives for hard-to-reach populations at a national and international level: MOVE Transfer international, an 18-month process of transferring good examples from one country to another country

The MOVE Transfer national and international processes involved extensive consultation from ISCA and an advisory board appointed especially to the project.

MOVE Transfer national, a 10-month process of transferring successful initiatives from one organisation and community to another organisation and community in the same country

This served to develop the capacity of the initiatives and the organisations delivering them in both settings. By the end of the project, 16 national and 10 international transfers have been completed.

SUCCESS STORY

Transfer of Sports Outreach from Ulster University (Northern Ireland) to University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and University of Cassino and Southern Lazio (Italy) “MOVE Transfer International is the project that offers a deeper understanding of specifics between countries, builds new partnerships and allows the transfer of knowledge and examples of good practices between them. The Faculty of Sport (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) received the Sports Outreach Model from Ulster University. On the basis of this excellent example of good practice, we adapted the content to the context in Slovenia and successfully implemented the project ‘8-week programme for active lifestyles among students’. We are happy that we can ‘pass the ball forward’ to countries that are having the same problems as Slovenia and are facing an increasing proportion of residents with unhealthy lifestyles.” Matej Majeri, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

YOUTH On The MOVE

youthonthemove.nowwemove.com

The power of young people promoting sport and ph The Youth on the MOVE project gathered 60 young bright minds from European and Latin American countries around one objective: bringing young people together to explore ways of implementing community-level campaigns and initiatives promoting physical activity.

The participants gave us a glimpse into the future of tackling physical inactivity via a decentralised, but connected, network of young motivated and autonomous change-makers.

I

SCA designed Youth on the MOVE recognising the need for more training for young people in the field of sports management and event coordination. Delivered as a 10-month training course through an online platform with virtual and physical meetings, the project gave the participants the tools to design and implement their own projects, work collaboratively and lay the foundations of an international network of “change-makers”. The ISCA Executive Committee saw first-hand the potential of this emerging intercontinental network at the European and Latin American offline training sessions. They embraced their role as advisors and listened carefully to the sometimes unconventional, but often bold and innovative ideas from the participants. “It is important to multiply, expand and transfer good ideas to other communities, countries and continents”, ISCA Vice President Maria Luiza Souza Dias says.

autumn events such as the FlashMOVE, European Fitness Day and European School Sport Day, and in the Latin America, Semana MOVE Brasil and Semana MUÉVELA (MOVE Week) offered similar opportunties. Youth on the MOVE was conceived partly as an incubator for new project ideas, but most importantly it was created to encourage young, active citizens to think globally and act locally. But it was not just a one-way process. The participants also gave us a glimpse into the future of tackling physical inactivity via a decentralised, but connected, network of young, motivated and autonomous change-makers creating a global movement with their successful local initiatives. With the help of these 60 newly trained Youth on the MOVE participants, the five-year-old NowWeMOVE campaign’s network MOVE Agents will expand its expertise and impact. Those new agents are shining examples of what makes the campaign successful: innovation and bottom-up activation.

As the result of their involvement in Youth on the MOVE, the European participants had a chance to implement their ideas as part of ISCA’s NowWeMOVE

FOCUS ON

Shane O’Donnell

Irish participant Shane O’Donnell won the Youth on the MOVE prize for the best project with his initiative Active Future Programme: Using Physical Activity to Promote Education amongst Adolescents at Risk of Early School Leaving. His target group captures a particularly vulnerable segment of the Irish population.

Shane O’Donnell, Irish participant of Youth On The MOVE

“I came back to Ireland inspired, motivated and ready to make a change. In my country, we have the fourth highest suicide rate amongst young people aged 15-24 in the EU and sadly there has been an increase in suicides amongst this age group in the local community. To tackle this issue, I set about designing the 8-week Active Future Programme.”

THE NUMBERS

“It’s always nice to see the next generation

that is and will definitely be better than we were. The challenges for them will be tougher than ours. We need very skilled and clever young people to tackle physical inactivity.” Mogens Kirkeby, ISCA President

NO ELEVATORS DAY

“In my everyday life, unfortunately, I’m not doing any sports and that’s also why it’s important for me to do as much activity as I can in my everyday situations.” Rasmus Nordqvist, Danish political party Alternativet

Local personalities, businesses and authorities say “NowWeTakeTheStairs” The second No Elevators Day on 13 May 2016 once again saw individuals and companies across Europe sealing off lifts and escalators and encouraging their co-workers to take the stairs.

L

ack of time is the most frequent excuse Europeans make for not being physically active. No Elevators Day shows that opportunities for busy people to get moving are all around them. High profile supporters of No Elevators Day in 2016 included: SportMalta, which filmed a No Elevators Day video in the Maltese Parliament for social media

Danish Parliament, where ISCA closed off its main elevator Belgian Ministry of Finance Slovak Railways building in Bratislava Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities (responsible for sport) and the House of Sports (home to several national sport federations) in Budapest Ministry of Youth and Sport headquarters in Vasile Conta, Bucharest, and Brasov in Romania

When we decided to shift the dates of ISCA’s MOVE Week to the spring in 2016, we did it, among other reasons, to be able to focus our autumn events and activities of the NowWeMOVE campaign towards the European Week of Sport. With the co-funding from the European Union for these events, we made an unparalleled contribution to the European #BeActive initiative whilst continuing to expand the NowWeMOVE campaign as a diverse, yearround array of campaign opportunities.”

JOURNEY OF HOPE

“Then I got company… People told me it gave them hope” The NowWeMOVE campaign’s cross-border cycling tour NowWeBike took on a new dimension in 2016 when it was selected as an official European Week of Sport. We designed it as a Forrest Gump-style tour called Journey of Hope, inviting anyone with an interest in cycling to join the team anywhere along the route from Denmark to Austria and ride with them as long as they wished. After 2500km and 31 days on the road, our four tour leaders, Feridun Ekmekci, Adnan Cangir, Aysel Atas and Meliha Kaya arrived at a public reception in Vienna on Saturday 17 September.

Slovakia on 10 September, first joining the morning’s Retro Bike Fest and then being invited to the stage to meet EU Commissioner for Education, Culture Youth and Sport, Tibor Navricsics (pictured).

Just like Forrest Gump, the team “got company”. And then they “got even more company”. They departed Copenhagen alongside 50 local recreational cyclists and staff from ISCA, our Danish member DGI and the Danish Cyclists’ Federation, and overall gained about 90 followers along the EuroVelo route to Vienna.

The tour gave communities along and off the route a chance to be part of the tour by organising side events. In Berlin, the team helped immigrant women learn how to ride a bicycle, it joined the Kilometres of Positive Energy in Wroclaw, did daredevil stunts at a European Week of Sport and Mobility Week event in Bratislava, and activities at Heroes’ Square in Budapest. Off-route side events also took place in Slovenia, Greece and Portugal.

The Journey of Hope team starred in the official opening ceremony of the European Week of Sport in Kosice,

“It was a crazy idea that came after our Skirts on Bicycles event in Romania. Two ladies on my team put forward a bold question: What if we go to see them in Krakow, to join the Journey of Hope? I saw that they were thrilled by the idea and wanted to support it,” Mihai Androhovici, Vice President of Romanian Federation Sport for All, explains with a smile.

“I like to go further every time and push myself to go further. They say to me that when I’m on a bicycle I’m like the Bionic Woman!”

Aysel Atas, member of the Journey of Hope team.

“I don’t understand people when they say, ‘I don’t have enough time to be active. I say, ‘There’s always the time! Where are your priorities?’ Because of problems with obesity, you have to get people outside.”

FLASH MOVE

© Lithuanian Sport University

FlashMOVE opened the European Week of Sport E

ven though they were scattered across the whole continent, thousands of Europeans dancing in the #BeActive FlashMOVE were united by the same music and choreography at 11am on 10 September 2016.

Some of the most active cities were Medimurje, Croatia, with about 800 dancers, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and Mikolow, Poland, with 400 dancers and Ljubljana, Slovenia, and Swidnica, Poland, with more than 300 dancers.

The initiative raised the curtain of the official European Week of Sport’s opening ceremony in Kosice, under the patronage of the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the EU, where children invited the crowd surrounding the stage to join them in Europe’s biggest simultaneous flash mob. The FlashMOVE was live-streamed on the EU’s website and dancers in 155 cities across the continent shared their videos and photos throughout the day on social media.

All organisations allowed their progress and achievements to be externally evaluated, and committed to taking part in the activities that shaped the MOVE Quality development process.

A

n official European Week of Sport opening event, the FlashMOVE drew on three years of

experience from the NowWeMOVE campaign, which used it to create excitement in the lead-up to the pan-European MOVE Week.

EUROPEAN FITNESS DAY

European Fitness Day, the most active day in Europe I

nspired by the UK’s National Fitness Day, organised by ukactive since 2014, ISCA established a partnership with ukactive, BG Be Active, the German Gymnastics Federation (DTB) and the Sports Union of Slovenia to scale-up the concept and make 15 September the most active day of the year: European Fitness Day. The concept started with the question: What would a dream day for a fitness or leisure centre look like? Hundreds of potential new members walking through open doors and trying their

activities? Regular members bringing their friends along and showing them what the centre has to offer? With expert guidance from ukactive, based on their experience with National Fitness Day, and the partners’ expertise in physical activity promotion (including advice from the Spanish chain Eurofitness), we developed a range of customised resources and promotional materials that made it easy for event organisers to get involved. Ukactive’s National Fitness Day also added an impressive 18,000 events to the overall tally.

60 events were held in 15 Portuguese cities on European Fitness Day (Funchal in Madeira pictured)

ISCA LATIN AMERICA

MOVE Week in Latin America grows to 11 countries and record 7674 events Semana Muévela, the Latin American edition of MOVE Week, has set records in its fourth year expanding from five to 11 countries and from 5429 to 7674 events. ISCA member Sesc São Paulo and ISCA’s Latin American staff strived to build on the successful roll-out of Semana Muévela from Brazil (where the week is called Semana MOVE) to Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay in 2015 and secured support from organisations in Chile, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Venezuela to take part in the week from 19-27 November 2016. Almost 550 cities hosted Semana Muévela or Semana MOVE Brasil events, which included cycling events like Bike to Work, with “Bike Angels” riding through Sao Paulo to share active transport tips with the public, and a night ride, outdoor yoga sessions, gymnastics and trampoline, team sports, running for the elderly and a less conventional running race through muddy terrain.

Sesc started the MOVE Brasil campaign in 2013, inspired by ISCA’s NowWeMOVE campaign and in response to the biggest elite sport moments in Brazil’s history contrasting with decreasing participation in recreational sport and physical activity. ISCA Vice President and Latin America Chair Maria Luiza Souza Dias described MOVE Brasil as “a campaign committed to joining efforts, calling for and adding new partners to increase the amount of sport and physical activities practitioners in the country over four years”. Now her organisation Sesc is reaping the rewards of its combined efforts with ISCA to make a difference to the sport and physical activity landscape in Latin America.

There are no limits to how you can Find Your MOVE during MOVE Week.

ISCA LATIN AMERICA

As part of an agreement between the National Learning Service (SENA) and ISCA, Eurofitness Edu (the training centre of ISCA member UBAE Foundation in Spain) delivered a training course in Bogotá, Colombia in November. Forty physical activity teachers from SENA participated in the course with the goal being to gain tools to help them train and activate people with disabilities.

The seminar “The challenge of moving people in Latin America” in Sao Paulo from 7-9 December presented the results of Semana Muévela as well as the training of new MOVE Agents (called Movedores, or event organisers, in Brazil) through the Youth on the MOVE. More than 200 participants from 13 countries (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Denmark, Ireland, Malta, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Uruguay and USA) gathered at the seminar to discuss the status of sport and physical activity in Latin America.

EVS - 20 YEARS OLD!

20th Anniversary of the European Voluntary Service. Happy Birthday, EVS! T

OM SORIN BURUIANA FR ROMANIA

he year 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the European Voluntary Service (EVS), which is part of the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme. EVS gives young people (aged 17-30) an opportunity to travel, live abroad and contribute to a cause they are interested in by working for an NGO for a period from 2 to 12 months. While doing that, they are making new friends, improving foreign language skills and learning new skills that can help them later on in their professional career.

The EVS programme started as a pilot project in 1996, and over the last 20 years about 100,000 young people have been part of it. ISCA has been an EVS host organisation since 2001 and has so far hosted 48 volunteers from 22 countries. Here’s what some of them shared with us about their experience at ISCA.

EVS at ISCA from August 2009 until June 2010, currently working as a Communications Assistant at UNOPS in Myanmar.

“I have gained a powerful international network and cultural sensitivity that has helped me navigate through different environments, feeling that I can ‘sit at the table’ with anyone, including Commissioners from the European Union, the Mayor of Ljubljana or the President of Iceland.”

ANNE-FLORE ANGOT FROM FRANCE

EVS at ISCA from September 2010 to July 2011, currently working at the French Handisport Federation (FFH) as an Event and Project Coordinator.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN THE ISCA TEAM AS AN EVS VOLUNTEER?

I

SCA has an open call for EVS volunteers twice per year, usually in autumn (starting EVS in March) and in spring (starting EVS in September).

The EVS period is one year and ISCA as host organisation covers costs of accommodation, transportation and lunches, and gives EVSes a monthly allowance.

, LAURA-MARIA TIIDLA NIA TO FROM ES

EVS at ISCA from September 2016 to August 2017.

“I have developed both my personal and professional skills. Being with ISCA has confirmed that I have found the right field for me. Above all it’s about making friends and working day-to-day with these amazing teammates.”

VALENTIN DUPO UEY FROM FRANCE

EVS at ISCA from September 2013 to July 2014, now living in Brussels, working as Secretary General of JEF Europe (the Young European Federalists).

“On a personal level, as my EVS was my first experience abroad, I think I have learned to be open to the rest of the world. Today I have the feeling I grew through contact with great people from all over the world.” MARIA LOURDES GONZALEZ FROM Y ARGENTINA /GERMAN

EVS at ISCA from March 2016 to February 2017.

“ISCA is made of dedicated, innovative, passionate and inspiring people who are all keen to share their own experiences. I learnt a lot about project management, European projects and policies in the field of sport. I definitely learnt a lot about how an organisation can work with a very friendly atmosphere, a low hierarchy structure and a lot of independence among the different individuals who are still working as a team.”

2 016 IS C A A nnual Re p o r t - M O V IN G PEO PL E

“The multicultural setting and good vibe you feel every day is a push to wake up early in the morning, go to work and be certain that it is going to be a great day; that the people working next to you are pushing the boat to the same side, that there will be time to work hard and be focused, but also time to have fun, share experiences and be happy while moving the world.”
