3rd Commonwealth Sports Development Conference | 3 - 4 June 2010


The 3rd Commonwealth Sports Development Conference was held in the Mitchell Library, Glasgow on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th June 2010.  The theme of this inspiring and interactive event was Achieving Sustainable Development - Building capacity in Communities, Clubs and NGOs.

Who attended?
This was an invaluable opportunity for Sport Practitioners, Policy Makers and various types of Funders to come together to explore issues of vital importance in delivering sports-for-development and sports development programmes worldwide.

Commonwealth Games Associations (CGA) worldwide also attended the conference, ahead of the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, and provided a superb opportunity for discussions on international issues and programmes. 


Building on the 2006 and 2008 Commonwealth Sports Development Conferences, the 2010 Conference looked at a number of approaches to aspects of organisational development and sustainability relevant to organisations involved in the delivery of, or supporting those delivering, sports programmes.

Copies of plenary and workshop presenations are available to view and download

Speakers from the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports, LGT Venture Philanthropy, Comic Relief, Mathare Youth Sports Association (Kenya), Magic Bus (India) and Homeless World Cup are just a flavour of some of the organisations that were present. 

The 4th Commonwealth Sports Development Conference will be held in 2013 - watch this space for further information.
