The Athletes Giving Back Course, that was announced by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for the 2023 International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) on 6 April 2023 is now available on the Athlete365 Learning platform for athletes who want to contribute to sustainable development using sports-based approaches.

The course is designed for athletes who want to leverage their platform in sports for positive social change. It includes interactive modules providing access to tips, tools and strategies for athletes to help them get started and make a positive impact, where they can explore what sustainable development is, why it’s important, and how they can get involved and make an impact.  

With practical guidance and inspirational case studies from athletes worldwide who are already making a significant impact through sports-based initiatives, the interactive course provides a step-by-step guide to supporting and developing safe, inclusive and sustainable sports-based projects that promote education and livelihoods, equality and inclusion, health, peace and safe communities, and environmental sustainability. 

Additionally, athletes will learn how to best use their voices and platforms to advocate for key issues, engage with their network, support existing social change initiatives, and explore new career and social business opportunities. The course can be completed at the athletes’ own pace, and returned to at any time. 

The knowledge and skills acquired during this course will contribute to one or more of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It also stands in alignment with the strategies adopted by the IOC, including Olympism365, the IOC’s strategy aimed at strengthening the role of sport as an important enabler for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which is the focus of Recommendation 10 of Olympic Agenda 2020+5.

The course is available in English at the following link: https://olympics.com/athlete365/courses/athletes-giving-back/.

The course will also be made available in French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Russian.
