2030 Targets

The Alliance Strategic Plan for the 2024-2030 period ("ASP2030") describes the implementation strategy for the deployment of Academies in the territory of our Member-States and expands on what to expect for the transition and transfer of knowledge period. 

The strategic plan for the next 6 years is to build one (1) Academy in the territory of each of our Member-States and the International Academy in the territory of the Host Country. 

 

This plan will debut following the Nektar Meeting held in Geneva, Switzerland on July 25, 2024.

The International Academy

Any Member-State and candidate to membership may bid for hosting the International Academy and Headquarters of the Alliance.
 

The state hosting the International Academy, previously World Center of Excellence (WCE), will become the Headquarters of the Alliance.

 

The International Academy will be responsible for the design and delivery of Alliance programs. It will also be responsible to assume the lead role in the planning, design, and construction of each Academy. For that purpose, the Host Country will partner with national and international project operators with expertise to manage complex end-to-end projects, from design to construction with for aim the deliver Academies and sports infrastructures in phases to Member-States between 2026-2028. 

The International Academy will also have for function to receive top student-athletes from national Academies during their collegial studies (18-21) and to act as the official “agency” of all student-athletes, overseeing partnerships with international clubs, competitions and sporting events and assisting student-athletes with representation, contract negotiation, social media strategy, legal advice, tax and wealth planning and all other aspects of their sports careers. 

 

The International Academy will host various Ministerial conferences with Ministers of Education, Sports & Health and private sector representatives to advise on frameworks and guides to define and evaluate impacts of programs. Ministerial conferences will aim, amongst other things to establish with Member-States Multilateral Cooperation Agreements for the integration of Alliance programs into the National Education Systems of participating Member-States.

The Restructuring Board of the Alliance and the Agency have distributed the Host Country Protocols (HCP) to Member-States. The HCP establishes the protocols and procedures to be followed by Member-States and candidates to membership for the submission of bids to Host the International Academy.

Academies

Academies are modern preparatory boarding schools, sports training and education centers dedicated to young athletes aged 14-18.

 

Stadium

Each Academy is operated by the Alliance and will feature a boarding school for young student-athletes with proprietary programs and standard education programs affiliated with local schools, a dorm and residence building with sleeping quarters and a cafeteria, a campus with medical and professional training facilities and a sport infrastructure capable of hosting major regional sport events and competitions.

 

Each Academy will be able to receive up to 25 new student-athletes per year and 100 student-athletes at the same time. Stadiums will be able to receive +/- 2’000 guests, have lane tracks, runways with international-standard pits, press boxes with the ability to broadcast live and video display screens. Stadiums will be available for private rental and will serve as the home venue for trainings, events and competitions.

 

Facilities are developed from the ground up on land provided at no cost by Member-States. They are financed by the Alliance and led by a National Director under the direction and supervision of the President of the International Academy. National Directors lead the operations of their Academy, appoint and dismiss experts, teachers and coaches, oversee the development of national strategies and relay with Ministries and the International Academy.

Nektar and the Alliance will present the International Academy and the design plans of Academies to potential partners, sponsors and investors during the Nektar Meeting held on July 25, 2024 in Geneva, Switzerland. 

Programs

Our education and sports programs are designed by experts in sports, curriculum specialists, teachers and coaches.

Basketball Game

The modules for educating youth and training teachers developed by international groups of experts in 2007 were the foundation that led to the creation of the World Center of Excellence (WCE), now the International Academy. 

The Host Country, as the leading Member-State of the Alliance will host the International Academy and will lead the development and enhancement of education and sports programs with experts in sports, curriculum specialists, teachers and coaches, the goal of which is to introduce young athletes to the values of sport, Olympics and their relationship to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. 

 

Programs will be delivered in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish in physical and digital format to athlete-students of our Academies, clubs and sports organizations, preparing them compete in national and international competitions and to schools when integrated in National Education Systems.

 

The purpose of our programs is not only to train high-performance athletes, but also to provide students with the skills necessary to lead, communicate, integrate into society, and to prepare them to hold positions of responsibility in the sports industry. From the classroom to the field, Alliance Programs will help students become successful athletes and global citizens.

Alliance Games

The Alliance and the Agency have joined forces to create the “Alliance Games”. 

 

At heart of the Alliance Games is a long-term strategy to become the largest annual and global sporting event for athletes of age 14-18. One that we believe has the capacity to fill a significant gap in SDG targets while delivering excitement, engagement, collaboration and empowerment.

Stadium Fans

The Alliance Games will combine the experience of the Alliance in education and sports and the expertise of the Agency in delivering technology and financing solutions.

 

Competitions will be organized on campus or at the national stadium of each Member-State. Participants must be between 14-18 years old and be citizens of one of our Member-States to participate. 

 

For each competition, the Academy will select up to 25 winners in targeted fields who will become ambassadors of the Academy and their country and who will receive full scholarships in one of our Academies. Scholarships will include full access to academic and athletic programs, lodging, meals, clothing and living budget until the age of eighteen (18). Students will be able to choose from various scholarship terms and visit their homes at the end of the academic year, semester or during weekends.

 

At the end of their scholarship, student-athletes will compete against other students at the national and international level. Winners of end-of-scholarship competitions will be hired or receive a scholarship at the International Academy or at any public or private accredited school of their choice until they reach the age twenty one (21).

 

The competitions will offer a range of challenges in sports and education, the list of which will be drawn up by each Academy in cooperation with Ministers of Education and Sports as well as schools, sports groups and national sports movements in each Member-State.

 

National scholarships will be funded via the National General Fund of the Member-State while scholarships at the International Academy or accredited schools will be funded by the General Fund of the Alliance; provided that the Alliance will seek to fund scholarships through donors and sponsors whenever it can do so appropriately.

 

Over the 2026-2030 period, the Alliance will seek to award +11,000 scholarships with +4,000 scholarships per year by 2030

The Alliance
Method 

The Alliance works with the public and private sector via the Agency and the Nektar IBC to finance its initiatives, at no cost to its Member-States. 

Economic Model

The economic model of the Alliance consists of using donations, sponsorship, naming rights, partnerships in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and revenues generated from commercial projects and financial vehicles (SDG Ventures) established or operated by the Agency and members of the Nektar IBC to finance the Alliance Initiative in the territory of its Member-States.

 

SDG Ventures are structured in accordance with the protocols established by the Alliance and the Agency and may be developed in the territory of our Member-States or at the international level. When necessary, SDG Ventures secure financing through the Agency who prioritises economic sectors recommended in Country Strategies.

 

The Alliance also publicises its competitions and events to attract brands and to secure sponsorship, advertising and broadcasting revenues. 

Use of Proceeds

The Alliance determines prior any activity, operation or transaction what part of an income (e.g. donation, naming right, initial contribution, SDG Venture net income or revenue) is placed into the National General Fund or the National Reserve Fund of a Member-State.

 

Assets held in the National General Fund are used by the Alliance in accordance with the Strategic Development Plan developed with the Member-State, while assets held in the National Reserve Fund are used by the Member-State to support local, regional and national education and sports competitions and to meet budget needs for youth.

The Academy
Method 

The Academy Method is a strategy that uses “fan-tokens” to finance the education, training and career of student-athletes by unlocking the power of technology and finance. 

Student-Athlete Fan-Tokens

Fan-tokens will be issued for each student-athletes once they receive their scholarships. Fan-tokens will be available for purchase and trading in perpetuity by anyone, accompanying student-athletes throughout their studies and careers. 

 

Revenues generated from the sale of fan-tokens will go to finance the programs of students and will give fans the ability to track, vote and get rewards. In time, the value of tokens would increase based on achievements, competition results, grades and contract value in the professional world.

 

Fan-tokens and the Academy Method are key components of the Alliance economic model as they help finance the future of student-athletes while supporting the Alliance Initiative. They allow for the transparent tracking and allocation of funds and can be used to finance scholarships, helping future student-athletes and furthering the Academy in the country of the student-athlete.

 

In addition, with the support of the Academy, student-athletes will create their online identity, publish content, manage their social accounts and keep their followers engaged and entertained. This will teach student-athletes the importance of financial management, business and marketing at a young age.
