The global goals for sustainable development

Developing a common vision for international goals

What is the value of sport? Why is it a useful tool for contributing to the SDGs? Can it really foster a common vision internationally? What limitations does sport have and how should we approach that topic when talking to donors, partners and others?

This week focuses on providing you with the confidence and evidence to defend your initiative by tackling the difficult questions first before they are asked by a funder, from the boardroom, or government.

Creating a strong rationale for your proposed initiative, while also working through the challenges and being prepared with a rebuttal, will improve your ability to communicate the benefits of your programme. The final ‘capstone’ exercise on your programme is an opportunity to consolidate your learning from this course and apply it in your current role and future careers.

No time like the present, let’s get started on your defence!

How would you answer the questions above? Have your opinions changed since the start of the course?
