Date

Tue, 11/23/2021

When: 23 November, 3pm IST

The Abhinav Bindra Foundation is back with a webinar on "Sports for Youth Development - Values, Skills, Livelihood, and Growth." This is the fourth episode in a series of educative webinars on ‘Olympism and its values’. 

Positive youth development practices help young people develop skills and enables them to succeed in their personal and professional lives. Sport can be utilised to encourage youth to take positive risks, focus on self improvement and learn to work with people from diverse backgrounds. Sport provides children an opportunity to express themselves and has the potential to leave meaningful and lasting impressions on youth. 

We believe that if we aim to maximise youth development, the organisation and structure of the sports context must be intentional and well-planned. 

Panelists: 

  • Dr. Stephan Wassong:  Member, IOC Olympic Education Commission, Executive and Academic Director of the Olympic Studies Centre at the German Sports University Cologne
  • Dr. Ben Sanders:  Senior consultant at the International Platform on Sport and Development
  • Ravi Nayse: Vice President of the Skill & Entrepreneurship Development Institute (SEDI), an initiative by the Ambuja Cements Foundation aimed at empowering the youth across rural India
  • Hilla Davidov: Ph.D. candidate in the Olympic Studies program at Köln University (GER) and functions as the CEO of the International Catchball Federation

The 90-minute webinar will be moderated by Arka Bhattacharya, Director of External Relations at Gitam University.
