This section is still under development to build an integrated online course module into the sportanddev website. It is expected this will be released by June 2023, but until then you can access the MOOC on FutureLearn via the link below.


Sport for Sustainable Development: Designing Effective Policies and Programmes

A new, freely available online course to help individuals and organisations harness the potential of sport in their work towards sustainable development.    

With more governments and organisations around the world recognising sport as an enabler of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), sport is increasingly being used as a tool to address issues ranging from health and education to employment and conflict resolution. 

But, despite the increasing use of sport and growing perception of its value, individuals and organisations have limited opportunities to learn how to maximise sport’s positive impact.

To address this gap, the International Platform on Sport and Development, the Australian Government and Commonwealth Secretariat have collaborated to support the development of a free online course on Sport for Sustainable Development. 

Sport for Sustainable Development: Designing Effective Policies and Programmes marks the release of the first ever free massive open online course (MOOC) on sport for development.
