The Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) and sportanddev have today signed a partnership agreement to promote sustainable development initiatives of International Sports Federations and the global sports community.
Launched as part of GAISF’s International Day of Sport for Development and Peace activities, the content-sharing partnership will see sportanddev publish sustainability.sport content on its platforms and vice versa.
sportanddev is the leading global hub for the sport and development community to share knowledge, build good practice, coordinate with others and create partnerships.
GAISF President Raffaele Chiulli said:
“We are delighted to mark the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace by partnering with sportanddev to promote sustainable development initiatives by GAISF Members around the world. Sustainability.sport and sportanddev are both invaluable platforms for sports organisations aiming to champion good causes, so this partnership is a perfect fit.”
sportanddev Senior Project Manager Paul Hunt said:
“We are very excited to sign this partnership with GAISF, which will help grow the sport and development community while inspiring more sports organisations to share knowledge, best practice and create new partnerships. Ultimately, this partnership will help amplify the message that sustainable development is truly at the heart of sport.”
Celebrated annually, the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace presents an opportunity to recognise the role that sport and physical activity plays in communities and in people’s lives across the world. This year, the UN is using the occasion to recognise the role sport plays in communities, in individuals’ lives, and in building resilience in the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since launching at the end of June 2020, there are now more than 900 case studies, reports and sustainability initiatives featured on sustainability.sport
