Content:

The module Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) introduces participants to the theoretical and practical features of using sports as a tool for starting and facilitating social change. First, a basic introduction to SDP will be provided together with practical sessions showing how specific use of football and movement activities in general can positively affect social inclusion, the building of community and personal development. Specifically, Football3 and Football for Peace methodologies will be presented in practical sessions. Furthermore, links between SDP and Sustainable Development Goals, as a leading agenda in the contemporary SDP field, will be presented. To elaborate on the different possibilities the SDP brings, specific areas will be discussed including sport and gender, mass media, sporting mega-events or socialization. The weekly programme will include lectures, discussions and practical sessions.
