The second domestic workshop of the Sport for Sustainable Development project was held at the Kokushikan University Tama Campus, Japan, on December 23, 2020.
Four students, which will also participate in the training planned for autumn 2021 in Tokyo, Risa Tanaka, Yumi Adachi, Hideyuki Aoyagi, Futa Nagayoshi and staff members Junko Tahara, Junji Hosogoe, Yuya Maki, Yoshie Kubota and Takuma Ohira participated in the workshop.
The programme of the workshop included the presentation of the project, activities related to sustainable development from the perspective of sport and a group discussion.
The workshop began with the chairperson Junko Tahara explaining the outline of the Sport for Sustainable Development project based on the project’s manual “Score all 17”.
Each participant made a presentation about one of the 17 goals explained in the manual and described how sport can contribute to achieving the chosen goal by showcasing concrete examples and good practices.
The students decided to work on the following sustainable development goals; 1 (no poverty), 4 (quality education), 5 (gender equality), 8 (decent work and economic growth), 11 (sustainable cities and communities) and 15 (life on land). Their goal was to find additional good practices and examples of sport contributing to sustainable development.
The highlight of the workshop was the announcement that the Score All 17 manual will be translated into the Japanese language.
