2nd GloKnoCo online conference

The second GloKnoCo online conference to understand best practices in teaching Sport for Development and Peace.


Wed, 06/23/2021

The GloKnoCo project aims to establish best practice for the teaching and dissemination of Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) projects across the EU and internationally. It seeks to start a dialogue between universities and different SDP stakeholders (ministries, municipalities, think-tanks, NGOs) to ensure that the teaching of SDP courses addresses the needs of the sector whilst helping all the actors to engage with research.
