December 15, 2017

Transforming Cities through Sport is a UNESCO project aimed at challenging stigma associated with informal settlements and engaging out-of-school youth in Manila, Philippines.

 

The project seeks to create new safe spaces available for sport in poor urban areas, improve social cohesion, reduce violence by and against youth and promote greater gender equality by insisting on the participation of girls and vulnerable gender groups.

 

At the same time, it aims to engage city-level authorities, advocate for the importance of safe, green spaces for sport.
