The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) is set to host a Sport for Development conference at the Olympic House in Johannesburg on July 8.

Our country, our continent and indeed the entire world faces numerous challenges such as poverty, inequality and violence against women and children. Can sport play a role in developing human beings holistically and addressing these world challenges?

These are some of the key topics that will be covered at this very important conference. We appeal to sports federations, organisations, NGO’s and sports lovers who are serious about using sport as a tool to change their communities and society, and ultimately the world, to heed the words of the beloved father of our nation. Let’s come together and explore how we can use the power of sport to change the world.

Conference themes will also include Sport, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, School Sport for Development and Education and Training. Speakers will include amongst others, Ollie Dudfield and Dr Sam Ramsamy, IOC. Professor Cora Burnett, University of Johannesburg’s Olympic Studies Centre and Dr Lombe Mwambwa, SSCNA Advisory Board Member.
