Podcast: 'Sport for a Better World?’ a Commonwealth research symposium

Leading researchers and participants behind a new research project, ‘Sport for a Better World?’, which looks at the impact of sport as a tool for development and peace, took part in a Commonwealth Symposium during which they shared highlights and provided examples of their work.

“At the end of the day it comes down to promoting caring relationships and high expectations and getting kids involved,” says Dr Kim Scott, one of the research participants, who leads the Child Resiliency Programme in Jamaica which uses sport and cultural arts to build the confidence and resilience of underprivileged and vulnerable young people.

“It’s so very simple,” she says, “and yet so profound in terms of what actually makes a difference.”
