Sport for Development and the SDGs – a tool to contribute to the Sustainable Agenda
The Barça Foundation is the entity through which FC Barcelona conveys its corporate social responsibility. The Foundation is committed with the SDGs as the main framework of their core activities. The Foundation’s Strategic Plan, programmes, partnerships and campaigns are aligned with the SDGs, specially the 4th (Quality Education), the 5th (Gender Equality), the 10th (Reduced Inequalities) and the 17th (Partnerships for the Goals). In particular, the Foundation’s specific framework of action is Sport for Development. All work revolves around the idea of Sport as a tool to prevent violence, improve social inclusion of vulnerable groups and improve the access to education. At the 13th EFDN Conference, Aisha will discuss how football, and sport in general, contributes to achieving the SDGs and creating a more peaceful, sustainable future for all.
