Is the contribution of sport to the Sustainable Development Goals limited by a current skills and knowledge gap?
Sport has been recognised as an important enabler of sustainable development in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Two teams of experts, high-level officials and sport personalities will address these questions during the 4th Commonwealth Debate on Sport and Sustainable Development.
The Commonwealth Debate is held annually to mark the International Day on Sport for Development and Peace. It has become a leading global discussion on sport for development and peace policy and practice.
The 2019 Debate will consider the motion: “The contribution of sport to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is limited by a current skills and knowledge gap”
An all-female team won the 4th Commonwealth Debate on Sport, arguing that “intentional action” is needed to scale sport’s impact on sustainable development. MORE
The debate will probe the potential of sport to transform communities, the need for better training and investment in sports, and whether there is a lack of data showing impact at scale. MORE
