CSIT is an open organization and more than just a Sports Confederation and intends to implement the Social Inclusion Sector. The CSIT World Sports Games are opening the doors to people with disabilities and their families to join the CSIT festival with the typical spirit of friendship. As both sides, CSIT and Para-Sports, have many common interests and values, the parties agreed to work on future co-operation projects and give Para-Sports and SU-DS a bigger platform for their sports in the framework of the CSIT World Sports Games and in that way to enlarge the movement of CSIT.
CSIT President Bruno Molea agreed to be present for one day at the 1st FIFDS European Futsal Championship for Athletes with Down Syndrome under the patronage of CSIT in November in Lugano / SUI. General Secretary Burghardt and Valeria Gherardini were also present at the FederSwiss board meeting in Lugano to discuss the collaboration with and membership at CSIT with all international participants. Marco Tomasini, President of the new CSIT member union FederSwiss, will attend the CSIT ExCom meeting beginning of March in Forli in order to have additional meetings with the organizing committee of the CSIT World Sport Games 2019 in Tortosa (Spain) and all CSIT ExCom members.
