We are launching a Sports for Development Cluster in The LAB – join us!

What do the Champion’s League final, the MLB World Series, the opening ceremony at the Olympics, and the NBA final have in common? Easy, right? At these celebrated events, people come together despite their differences to root collectively for the same cause. When supporting our favorite teams, we all scream, laugh, and cry, just as we have felt goosebumps when the engines roar and the race starts in F1 and NASCAR. What’s notable is that sports are a fantastic way to connect people regardless of background and political beliefs. They teach us discipline, teamwork and are a great way to stay healthy. But, have you thought about the influence that sports could have to help our planet, achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and promote meaningful social change?

CanopyLAB has! We are very excited to introduce the Sports for Development cluster on our free social learning platform for youth, The LAB. The LAB already has hundreds of courses, many of which have been created by our more than 120 NGO partners. Next, let’s explore how your favorite sports, clubs, and athletes use their power and reach to promote positive changes worldwide.

What is the LAB?

The LAB is an online social learning platform where young people can access thought-provoking courses for free and learn from the unique perspectives of individuals from all over the world. In this way, they can build a global community of change-makers and work together to achieve the SDGs and the UN’s 2030 Agenda.

Because of our commitment to local change led by local changemakers, we have created a fantastic online community – we understand that a hashtag does not translate to meaningful action unless you have the education and tools to bring about the changes you want to see. #PlayLikeAGirl, #TakeAKnee, and #EndRacism have amassed a global following on social media and become trending topics many times over, but now it’s time to take our activism a step further and learn how, by harnessing our passion for sports, we can take specific actions to make sure emerging critical issues rise above what’s trending and bring about real transformation to society.
