Aligning your initiatives with the SDGs

Reflection activity: consider your area of activity.
Consider the sport and development activity you are currently working on or planning, as identified in step 1.10.


Use the framework below to reflect on the specific SDG(s) you wish to align this initiative to – maybe you have already done this, which is fine. Each SDG has a series of specific targets (see here for detail) so please also select a few targets that you believe your initiative can contribute to.

Remember – it is not possible to contribute to all SDGs and targets at once. Prioritise the SDGs and targets that best suit your project. A targeted and deliberate approach is recommended.

This activity is designed to make you reflect and can be used in current and future sport and development initiatives. It’s a good habit to get into before you begin designing your project.
