Celebrating International Day of Sport for Development and Peace - Part Four

Part four of our celebration looks towards the IDEALS programme...


IDEALS is a UK Sport-led programme which aims to establish a high quality, progressive and co-ordinated sports leadership development exchange programme between the UK and partner countries for people aged 20 and above. Started in 2006, IDEALS is linked to 10 Universities across the UK and is operational in four countries, working with 10 local organisations, Universities or National Governing Bodies (NGBs) overseas a. Since 2006, 356 British students, 64 university staff members and 31 young professionals have participated in the programme. The programme is directly supported by International Inspiration (IN), a leading international development charity born out of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games with the aim of inspiring and transforming the lives of young people around the world through the power of sport.
