Sport is a universal language and fundamental right. It is an incredible resource for solving major societal issues. PLAY International supports this idea and shows through everyday actions that innovation through sports favours social cohesion and can resolve many educational and health-related problems. Playdagogy is an innovative active educational methodology that allows children to play and learn at the same time. The Playlab is bringing people together to collaborate around social innovation through sport.
PLAY International, a catalyst for social change through sports
Through its activities among more than half a million participants in 12 countries since 1999, PLAY International has used sports as powerful leverage for social change.
Whether it involves overcoming trauma after surviving a tsunami, understanding a balanced diet, or rebuilding communities torn apart by conflict, PLAY International develops new methods in teaching, social cohesion, and affective management to help with these issues.
Today, PLAY International is developing its pedagogical and social projects for large-scale use.
Social Impact: a Team Sport
To help sustain the impact of its actions, PLAY International has developed a network of teachers and development specialists around the world.
By bringing together this network’s different skill sets, PLAY International seeks to promote social innovation through sports.
By pooling resources, PLAY International hopes to maximise the impact of its programmes as well as the investment of its partners.
