World Athletics’ vision is to use the power and accessibility of athletics and its athletes to create a healthier and fitter world.
This sustainability vision is guided by the Athletics for a Better World (ABW) programme, which harnesses the commitment and energy of the worldwide athletics family to inspire lasting change across all segments of the sport and the society that embraces it. Propelled by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and united under a common brand, the ABW platform promotes all World Athletics projects that seek to use athletics as a tool for social, economic and environmental good.
