Sporting together

Readers' Views No 302, April 2015
OECD Observer

We at the Commonwealth Youth Sport for Development and Peace Working Group believe that sport can be used as a tool for different types of development, including economic, social and personal development.

Sport can be a low-cost effective way of increasing engagement, crossing cultural ties and achieving healthier lifestyles.

Sport and play are human rights that must be respected and enforced worldwide; therefore, it may be valuable to include the measurement of access to sport and play as an indicator of youth well-being.
