Cooperation and collaboration with related organizations


The Basic Act on Sport regards sport as a “universal human culture”, and proclaims that living a happy and prosperous life through sports is a “right of all people”. In order to realize this philosophy, we established the “JAPAN SPORT NETWORK” in July 2013 to strengthen cooperation and promote collaboration with other sports-related organizations. The JSC has concluded the “Power of Sport” Joint Declaration with 577 local governments (as of late September 2015) to strengthen our network with communities, and is keeping up efforts to develop the network.

Co-hosting of events

The JSC organizes events with local governments to inform a broad range of community members about the wonderful aspects of sports.

Holding of seminars

The JSC holds seminars nationwide to share up-to-date information based on local needs. (In FY2014, seminars were held in Miyagi, Osaka, and Fukuoka Prefectures.)

Development of donation culture (installation of vending machines accepting donations)

With the cooperation of local governments, the JSC installs vending machines that accept donations as a way to secure funding for the promotion of sports, and fosters a culture of giving donations.

Cooperation with universities

The JSC has concluded comprehensive partnership agreements with four universities (as of May 2015) to contribute to the promotion of sports and to the development of sports medicine and science through exchanges of human and intellectual resources and the use of material resources possessed by universities and the JSC, and through mutual collaboration and cooperation, pursuant to the purposes of the Basic Act on Sport and the Sport Basic Plan.
