‘Games without Frontiers’: The Potential of Sport for Development and Peace

‘Games without Frontiers’: The Potential of Sport for Development and Peace
Friday 9th November – Sunday 11th November 2012

CYEC is co-ordinating a UK wide seminar on the potential of sport for Development and Peace: “Games without Frontiers’. The aim of the seminar is to explore the contribution of Sport as a tool for intercultural dialogue, promoting peace and equality, valuing diversity and bringing people from different communities together.
In bringing together young people, practitioners & policy makers from sporting and youth work backgrounds we plan on providing a platform for debate and discussion regarding how best to use sport to engage in Intercultural Dialogue. The two-day UK wide seminar, held in Glasgow, will consist of a range of activities and techniques to explore the contribution of Sport as a tool for Intercultural Dialogue by looking at European and Commonwealth approaches. Methods will include case study presentations, workshops, discussion groups, networking, action planning and evaluation activities. These methods will ensure the experience is participatory and interactive.

Interested organisations should nominate either one or two people to participate. Please note that overall numbers are limited to 25 from across the UK.

The two-day seminar will be held in Glasgow from the 9th -11th of November 2012. Below are the flyer and application form, which is to be completed and returned via email or post to Carl Konadu (mail@cyec.org.uk),
