ASEAN Sport and the SDGs Youth Funshop

UNESCO and the Philippine Sports Commission are hosting the first ever UNESCO Sport and the SDGs Youth “Funshop".

Date

Wed, 11/08/2017 to Fri, 11/10/2017

Location

Manila
Philippines

Sport is a celebrated aspect of community life across the world and in Southeast Asian region. It is also explicitly referenced within the UN Agenda 2030 as an important enabler of sustainable development and peace. The use of sport in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is broadening, likely due to its versatility and ability to engage diverse segments of society where other mediums may fall short.

The three day “FUNSHOP” (a workshop designed to emphasise positive thoughts and interactions inherent in sport), will be both learning and action-based, complete with obstacle courses, interaction with local youth and field trips to visit selected Philippines Sports Authorities (PSAs) and participate actively in local grassroots sport for development programmes.

Deadline for the call for applications: 1 October 2017
