To activate the objectives of the "100-Year Legacy Mission", the work of the Institute will be developed within three pillars which reflect its priorities. These are:
These three overarching programme areas are intended to work organically while incorporating global perspectives on the increased value sport brings to human and societal development.
Grounded on Kano's philosophy and the values of Olympism, the Institute aims at promoting Olympic education to develop a balanced human being in mind, intelligence, body and aspiration, while the research programme promotes further understanding of Olympism and the core values of sport into the 21st century. The programme allows for a global perspective in partnership with international experts and international education/ research institutes for informing policy.Example of activities:
The international anti-doping programme seeks a spirit of "Play True", as led by the World Anti-Doping Agency. In partnership with the Japan Anti-Doping Agency, it collaborates to promote anti-doping education and develop experts and management staff in anti-doping, particularly in Asian countries. The Kano Institute also is engaged in multi-disciplinary research that may be applied to the positive promotion of the core spirit of sport and that can contribute to the global promotion of anti-doping activities.Example of activities:
The Global Outreach Programme is designed to contribute to the promotion of sport for the purposes of individual, societal and international development. The Kano Institute also acts as a 'clearing house' to make maximum use of all available resources in order to face global challenges, seize opportunities, extend its network and contribute to the promotion of sport.Example of activities:
