As the post-2015 development agenda takes shape, this forum will provide an opportunity to explore how sport can contribute to the SDG framework and how to bring targeted and lasting impact. Convening an international cross-section of stakeholders from government, civil society, private sector and the sports community, this meeting provides a space to share perspectives and work towards practical recommendations in using sport as an innovative and impactful tool for development. Dialogue will work towards several objectives including:

  • Determining lessons on how to best measure, communicate and ensure lasting impact of sport for development on individuals and communities
  • Highlighting existing trends and challenges in the use of sport for development and asking: What does “success” look like?
  • Creating of an active network between participants for impactful collaboration between different actors
  • Evaluation and positioning of sport in broader development efforts, particularly in light of the post 2015 development agenda

The three-day conference will include speakers, video screenings, and breakout sessions.
