Sport for Development and Peace improving the lives of young people and communities through the SDGs, Prof. Geoff Thomson
The social development of young people and communities through sport is now in its 23rd year. However, the lack of a strategically coherent approach sees an eco-system of competition v collaboration. This year, the Youth Charter marks 3 decades of work in improving the life chances of disaffected and disadvantaged young people and communities. Despite there being a now well-established global Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) movement/sector, there has yet to be a clearly defined Model and Framework that can be used both for the delivery of SDP projects and programs. The Youth Charter will present its #GlobalCall2Action developed through its Community Campus Model and Legacy Cultural Framework to map, track and measure the outputs and outcomes that deliver against the Sustainable Development Goals. This groundbreaking approach will reduce inequality and poverty and create a safer and healthier world for future generations to come.
