How to navigate the new sportanddev.org

Many people have already experienced and enjoyed browsing our new site. Here the operating team brings you some of the main changes worth highlighting.

Organisations

Team players can now join more than one organisation. Recognising that some people are involved in multiple projects, the new website allows you to request membership of other organisations. The ‘owner’ of that organisation still needs to approve membership. With this includes the functionality to create ‘groups’ of organisations also.

Additionally, the homepage has a new ‘featured organisation’ which highlights one of the 700 organisations registered on the website and frequently changes.

Publications

Stay up-to-date with the latest in research, manuals, annual reports and much more in the ‘Latest Publications’ corner. Navigate through the ‘Toolkit’ to land on this section and find it divided in to three categories to ease your search:

  • Manuals and Tools
  • Research and project evaluations
  • Other

Events

Browse the events section to see what is happening and plan months ahead. Now the events are ordered in reverse and grouped month by month. If you want to add an event, you can submit it via your Team Player profile or email us directly.

Team Players can message others

The site has always been completely free to use and to create your own profile/organisation. The improved ‘Connect’ section now features Team Player profiles. If you want to reach out to someone, try sending them a message. They will receive an email notification and decide whether to respond. These settings can be changed to your desired level of privacy. Team Players can now also belong to more than one organisation.

Featured Sports

There are two new featured sports: Football and Rugby. Here you will find the most comprehensive information related to these sports (four currently) and development.

Improved search engine

The new site comes with improved search capability. Find old articles directly from the homepage search bar based on keywords.

Media

An entirely new section highlighting photos, videos and much more from projects around the world. This presents users with a chance to send us their photos for the community to experience and understand more easily what is happening within sport and development globally.

For the articles containing videos, please note that the video will always be found on the right-side at the end of the article.

We would appreciate any feedback you have, so please log in and post them below.
