Episode 18 – Conferences and delivery

In this month’s episode we digest the recent activity by the Good Sports team both in the conference halls and the delivery field.

Firstly, we hear from Simon Lansley from ConnectSport who gives us the latest news from the world of Sport for Development.

We then hear from Paralympian and passionate Sport for Development advocate Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE who Sara caught up with at the recent Bond Conference. Sara also caught up with  Tobias Smith from the Bond Sport and Dev Group and Benji Sundblad from Tackle Africa. Sara then talks through her perceptions of the conference and how Sport and Development was received by the wider International Development community.

Dave has also attended a conference recently, as he was at the SportforDevelopment Coalition event hosted by Twitter UK. We hear about how Sport and Development can break into the mainstream and whether its possible to articulate the work that many organisations are doing in this space under the umbrella of well-being.

Meanwhile, Lee has actually been out in the field delivering, as he has spent two weeks in Uganda with Cricket Without Boundaries. Isaac from Family Spirit sums up the trip better than any of the Good Sports can, but we have a go at understanding the learnings and challenges from the trip.

Finally, the traditional format of the quiz returns as Lee, 4-10 down to Sara, looks to start his fightback. This month the quiz focuses on sporting language as a nod to the recent International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.
