Another stage of the RINGS project took place on 13 October at the Fredericia Idrætscenter in Denmark, with the national workshop organised by the Danish National Olympic Committee and Sports Confederation (DIF).
Eva Krarup Hatt, DIF Public Affairs consultant and Thomas Bach, DIF Deputy Chairman, opened the workshop by reporting basic information and news from the Danish Olympic Committee. Afterwards, Poul Broberg, Director of Public Affairs at DIF, introduced the RINGS project and presented the Public Affairs Guidelines, which were developed by DIF in the framework of the RINGS projects. He then covered topics such as the analysis and goal setting, public relations, setting key messages and communications.
The workshop continued with a groupwork where the participants, based on the RINGS Public Affairs Guidelines, discussed how local cases can be handled politically in the municipality.
The seminar finally ended with the presentation of the results of the group work and a Q&A session.
About the RINGS project
The RINGS project, led by the EOC EU Office and co-funded by the Erasmus+ Sport programme, is running from January 2020 to December 2022 and focuses on the strategic management of NOCs (ie., change management, public affairs and communications, governance of NOCs). The last phase of the project is to organise national training workshops in each of the 11 partner NOCs. Each of them focuses on the specific themes that are relevant to the national context
