How sport can drive change for a better world
In February, 2022 Craig co-launched with Torrens University Australia an online, free short course titled ‘Sport for Good’ that explores the power and responsibility of global sport to be a driver for positive social change.
Utilising his experience in social justice advocacy and campaigns over decades and more recently, his work on #SaveHakeem campaign to free Hakeem al_Araibi from a Thai prison and his work with the Australian Government to evacuate hundreds of predominantly female athletes from Afghanistan including the Afghan Women’s National Football team, Craig explores the growing field of sport activism to provide a blueprint for sport practitioners everywhere to follow.
With four modules, the short course works through the history of sport activism in ‘Sport and Society, the growing field of ‘Sport and Human Rights’ including new policy approaches by FIFA and the International Olympic Committee, ‘Sport Leadership in a New World’ where athletes, sponsors and administrators will need a different set of tools to thrive and explains theories of change and different forms of advocacy in ‘Sport as a Voice for Change’.
Designed for all sport practitioners from:
- aspiring athletes to professionals,
- current and aspiring sport administrators and students,
- corporate partners and
‘Sport for Good’ is a groundbreaking course that seeks to equip a new generation of sport practitioner with the understanding, tools and rationale to make a positive difference in the world.
