First webinar of the SDG Sport Lab, hosted by Sport and Sustainability International (SandSI). It assess why the SDGs are a critical for success, how many worldwide federations are applying the SDGs today, and how the IOC supports the role of sport to advance on the SDGs.
Due to its vast reach, unparalleled popularity and foundation of positive values, sport is ideally positioned to contribute towards the United Nations’ objectives for development and peace.
To raise awareness of this potential, 6 April was declared as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) on 23 August 2013, by the UN General Assembly. The adoption of this Day signifies the increasing recognition by the UN of the positive influence that sport can have on the advancement of human rights, and social and economic development.
As governments voted on the establishment of the day, it receives wide recognition and ownership on an international scale. This proclamation is the result of collaboration between a number of different stakeholders, including the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP), governments, non-governmental and multilateral organisations and the private sector.
In this webinar you will learn Why the SDGs are a key tool for communications and commercial partnerships; How international sports federations are delivering on the SDGs; What future plans are of the IOC and UN Commonwealth Secretariat on sport and SDG indicator implementation.
