Parkour.Earth Launches International Federation for Free Running
In the following Voices.Earth podcast interview, Eugene Minogue, Chief Executive of Parkour.Earth, discusses the launch of his new International Federation for Parkour and free running, and how a .Earth domain name is ideal for his organization.
Parkour is an emerging and independent sport that focuses on moving rapidly through an area, typically in an urban environment, negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, and climbing. However, it’s much more than a sport – it’s a philosophy, an art form, lifestyle, and a discipline that offers a wide-range of meaning for all participants.
While this Parkour tends to be an underground sport, there’s a need for developing an International Federation that will serve as the custodian of the philosophy, integrity, and sovereignty of all things Parkour.
This is where Parkour.Earth comes in to play. The new organization serves as the sole governing and administering body for Parkour. It has even has developed a constitution that dictates principles of good governance and advances the core values of the sport.
In addition, Eugene decided to use a .Earth domain name for a very special reason.
“The .Earth domain really articulates what Parkour is all about,” said Eugene. “Unlike other sports that have a court or a field, with Parkour all we need is the Earth to practice our sport. It also ideally articulates our organization’s name and reinforces how Parkour transcends all sports overall.”
