Parkour Earth has been established on two fundamental principles;
- National Federations federating – to comprise of national Parkour/Freerunning/ Art Du Deplacement communities, as represented by their National Federations and/or organisations governing and/or administering the development of the sport, art and/or discipline nationally, as well as embracing and supporting those communities trying to form a National Federation in territory where there is no National Federation and/or organisation.
- Established on the recognised principles of ‘Good Governance’ – this starts with the Memorandum & Articles of Association defining and creating a clear, practical and proportionate system which sets out what the International Federation can do, who the members are and can be, how decisions are made and who is responsible for making it happen. By implementing Good Governance practices, Parkour Earth will ensure that it is being managed effectively, in a way that helps it to achieve its objects, values and principles whilst also safeguarding the integrity of the Federation and the best interests of all its members and the international community.
In-line with the founding fundamental principle of Good Governance and as part of our primary objects, Parkour Earth applied to become members of the Sport Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA) – an independent, neutral, and global body dedicated to the promotion and safeguarding of integrity, good governance, and ethical behaviour in sport. Parkour Earth attended the SIGA Sport Integrity Forum II on the 26 July 2017 and the SIGA Congress on the 27 July 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal where Parkour Earth was formally accepted into membership of SIGA. To ensure that Parkour Earth wholly fulfills its founding principle and object of Good Governance, Parkour Earth will begin to fully implement the SIGA ‘Universal Standards’.
