Parkour Earth Global Engagement

Parkour Earth Global Engagement



One of the reasons Parkour Earth was founded was the urgent need to amplify the voices of national federations contesting the claims being made by the International Gymnastic Federation.

This continues to be a factor, however, the other important reason was establishing a democratic international platform built by the community at large. We are passionate about ensuring that Parkour Earth is holistic in its goals and the way it operates. In order to truly support, develop, and represent the international parkour community, we are seeking to engage all facets of the community.

We want to create a concrete vision for the organisation that aligns with the diversity of views from across the globe. To capture and integrate inputs from all the different actors of the community, we need to identify the best way of engaging and connecting with you, the global community, in a way that works for you and makes you feel rightly represented and supported by us.

Connecting people in a democratic way is at the core of parkour practice, and this is why we’re launching a global community engagement process.

How to Participate


This process will involve multiple online engagements through a number of platforms to allow for engagement with as many people as we can:

  1. Online workshops (Register below). Initially facilitated by ThinkPlace (who have been volunteering with parkour organisations for a number of years), and any subsequent meetings by the Parkour Earth Board.
  2. Online survey. The initial survey is in English and we welcome your support in translating it into more languages. We will update the list below as translations are made:
    1. English
    2. Español
    3. Deutsch
    4. Türkçe
    5. Polski
    6. Français
    7. Ελληνικά
  3. Other interactions as necessary (e.g. live interviews). This will depend on demand and exploring appropriate ways to capture your voice. Got an idea for how to interact with you? Or just want to tell us your thoughts about Parkour Earth in general? Message us by using the contact form at the bottom of the page, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Online Workshop Registration


To register for an online workshop (facilitated via Zoom), choose the category that most fits your position within the parkour community, and follow the associated link (NOTE: Some organisations and people were invited directly – see below).

Please note, there is a cap of 20 participants per workshop, so registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. With that in mind, if you know someone who can represent your ideas well, consider passing on your thoughts to them and leaving a spot open for someone else.

We recognise that not all timezones align with the initial workshops, so we will be scheduling additional ones in August.

The initial four workshops will be facilitated in English, and we welcome your support in facilitating additional workshops in more languages.
