Sport for Sustainable Development: Designing Effective Policies and Programmes

Sport is one of the things that binds the people of the Commonwealth together and it is often seen as a tremendous source of pride.

While sport is enjoyable for recreation, it is also increasingly being used as a tool in sustainable development work and to enable positive societal change.

The Commonwealth Secretariat, in partnership with the International Platform on Sport and Development and the Australian Government, have collaborated on an online course, available free of cost, to support this growing movement.

Sport for sustainable development

During the online course, participants will learn:

  • the benefits and limitations of using sport in development;
  • how to design, implement, and measure the impact of sport-based policies and programmes using best practices;
  • key concepts on sport and gender equality, disability, human rights, social inclusion, peacebuilding, good governance and safeguarding
