Call for applications: Sport Leadership Programme

Dream. Speak up. Act. Be a leader and lead the change. Create tomorrow’s sports culture today. One can create a change, but many people can generate a movement – and set standards for the new normal.

Lead the change – be the change

By empowering and equipping leaders with strong tools to think, learn and act we can transform the sport movement. New Leaders need a platform to exchange ideas and practise their skills. They need people around to get inspired and inspire in return. New Leaders need tools to act. Action creates change.

Apply now – at the latest by 31 Oct!
