The Role of Youth-Led Street Sports & Culture in Sustainable Development
GAME’s core empowerment methodology using youth-led street sports and culture as a way to achieve a social change (the center of the illustration) has the potential to contribute to the achievement of several societal issues and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (the adjacent parts of the football), including SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being, SDG 4: Quality Education, SDG 5:Gender Equality, SDG 6: Clean Water & Sanitation, SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities, SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, SDG 13: Climate Action, and SDG 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
Partnerships contribute achieve sustainable development
GAME’s core empowerment methodology is based on the idea that young people are key agents of social change. Therefore, GAME works with young people to create youth-led initiatives that are designed to meet the specific needs of their communities.
As the activities are designed and implemented together with a range of partners specialised in different areas of sustainable development, including governments, non-governmental organizations, corporations, and individuals, GAME’s approach to social change through street sports and culture is an innovative and effective way of achieving sustainable development.
By working with young people and communities to create youth-led initiatives, and by partnering with a range of stakeholders, GAME is able to achieve impacts in areas such as health, education, gender equity, and community development.
