FISU Oceania and Asia members polish their media and development skills

NEW TAIPEI CITY – The FISU-NUSF Seminar 2019 was a fruitful one, held on the International Day of University Sport. Almost 50 delegates from 18 countries gathered in New Taipei City to exchange experience, best practices and challenges regarding ‘Media and Sports Development’. At the end of the two-day seminar it emerged that member federations would actively welcome FISU’s support in the specialised areas of media and marketing.

The seminar began with the President of FISU Oceania Martin Doulton getting everyone to warm up with a spot workout that was both, fun and ice breaking. FISU’s Development Director Lilia Barieva then kicked things off in earnest, with the plenary sessions and workshops arranged according to the two themes. Several FISU member Continental and National University Sports Federations presented their development and media programmes; among them were Lou Kit Long from AUSF member Macau, Donna Spethman from FISU Oceania (Australia) and Cornelius Papau of the Papua New Guinea Students Association.


FISU Media and Communication Manager Tina Sharma initiated the media workshops, followed by Sarah Anderson of New Zealand who shared the UTSNZ’s rapid progress in social media strategy.


Fabio De Dominicis presented the European University Sports Association’s (EUSA) comprehensive communication activity that covers 46 countries. Polly Wei from the host Chinese Taipei University Sports Association gave insights into their highly successful media volunteers programme.


"I believe all delegates have benefited from great presentations and discussions,” said CTUSF Secretary-General Ching-Yu Tseng. “We wish we could have more such exchanges and work closely in the future.”
