The 3rd Commonwealth Sports Development Conference is being held in the Mitchell Library, Glasgow on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th June 2010. The theme of this inspiring and interactive event is Achieving Sustainable Development – Building capacity in Communities, Clubs and NGOs.
This is an invaluable opportunity for Sport Practitioners, Policy Makers and various types of Funders to come together to explore issues of vital importance in delivering sports-for-development and sports development programmes worldwide.
Commonwealth Games Associations worldwide will attend the conference, ahead of the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, and will provide a superb opportunity for discussions on international issues and programmes.
Seminars, Plenary and Q&A sessions will build on the 2006 and 2008 Commonwealth Sports Development Conferences. The 2010 Conference will look at a number of approaches to aspects of organisational development and sustainability relevant to organisations involved in the delivery of, or supporting those delivering, sports programmes.
Speakers from the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports, LGT Venture Philanthropy, Comic Relief, Mathare Youth Sports Association (Kenya), Magic Bus (India) and Homeless World Cup are just a flavour of some of the organisations that will be present.
