The IWGA Media Workshop on 28th and 29th September at the Olympic House in Lausanne will focus amongst others on the topic of communication in and with China. Julian Gornall-Thode, General Manager of the Lausanne Office of Shankai Sports, explains in the IWGA Interview of the Month why it is worth working hard to overcome possible hurdles. This is certainly true for The World Games 2025, which will take place in Chengdu, People's Republic of China. The company Shankai has begun this year to support the IWGA in staging a successful Games in China.
The International World Games Association (IWGA) has earlier announced the 35 sports in the 12th edition of the multi-sport event in Chengdu, People's Republic of China, to be held from 7th to 17th August 2025.

From 28th July to 8th August, the FISU World University Games took place in Chengdu, People's Republic of China. For The World Games families, the ‘trailblazer event’ was of particular interest this year. This is because in two years' time Chengdu will host TWG 2025 (7th to 17th August). In the IWGA Interview of the Month, FISU Sports Director Juan Carlos Holgado says: "the host met the highest standards for an international multisport event.” A good reason to look forward to The World Games in Chengdu.
