- Policy leaders in sports and sustainability
SDG STRIKER seeks (1) to increase the organisational capacity for Good Governance in grass roots sport organisations by assisting them to implement and communicate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and (2) to develop a joint understanding about best practices before, during and after being tested, and assess their potential for replication across national sports federations – and beyond national borders.
This project brings together 6 partners: three technical organisations (Ecoserveis, the Energy Institute of the Johannes Kepler University and the European Football Development Network), and three UEFA football associations (Portugal, Norway and Scotland).
For the first goal, the project will collate and summarize relevant research on the sustainability aspects of the three focus areas to be implemented in the next phase: energy poverty/efficiency, PV feasibility and greener turf filler). Also, it will develop a survey targeting grass roots football clubs to assess their needs and current practices in the focus areas, and offer mentoring to increase their competences. Each country will run a specific pilot targeting grass roots clubs that will be evaluated and validated later on.
Transfer knowledge and transferability is also an important issue in SDG STRIKER. Therefore for goal 2, a set of Intellectual Outputs will be disseminated in 8 Multiplier Sport Events and face-to-face meetings: (a) a practical guide on how to incorporate and communicate SDGs in sports organisations, (b) an evaluation report of the pilots, (c) a strategic guide for SDGs practitioners which will include policy recommendations and (d) a new and innovative digest on SDGs in sports aiming at sport club owners, facilities’ managers and sportspeople. The project’s life span is 30 month, and covers 6 European countries.
