Newsletter November I




Dear readers,

The climate crisis is the biggest game of our lives and requires an unprecedented team effort. While COP26 may not have delivered the progress many had hoped for, sport organisations and athletes played a greater role in proceedings than ever before - check out our coverage of COP26 here.

Thanks to all who joined our Week of Action on using sport to support displaced women and girls, held in partnership with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Over 170 participants attended our inspiring webinar and the conversation continued the next day during our Twitter Q&A. Our call for articles is still open until 21 November - submit here in English or French.

We also feature an upcoming event on developing occupational standards in sport and development, an event for our French speaking audience, an article on LGBT history in sports and the latest research from the Journal of Sport for Development. 

Happy reading,

The sportanddev team
