Sport not only provides health benefits to those who practise it, it also provides opportunities to learn and develop many life skills that are useful for young people’s futures. Organisations and individuals around the world are working at the intersection of education and sport to benefit young people and global communities. This workshop will not only explore the power of sport as a tool for enhancing educational outcomes and imparting life skills but will also provide examples of organisations and individuals using this intersection to make a difference.
