Protecting and promoting safe sport

Keeping everyone on the same page become harder as numbers increases, so we applaud this effort in New Zealand, a country of just over five million people, to manage its overall sport’s culture:

Sport and recreation are important parts of people’s lives in New Zealand – we have some of the highest participation rates in the world and a global reputation for fairness.
