Parvati and Govinda spend some 12 days in the Korean city. Together with 34 fellow youth from 16 countries aged 18 to 25 they received training and guidance in the best practices in the field of Sport for Development and Peace (SDP). A program that not only contributes to the personal development of youth by helping participants develop their leadership skills in SDP, but contributes to overall community development as well. By providing an opportunity to develop and exercise their leadership skills, the youth participants can strengthen a community’s capacity to build on its strengths and respond to pressing community needs.

The agenda was packed with a wide variety of sports and classroom sessions. Topics in included “Leadership through Football”, “Adapted Physical Activities for those with a Disability”, or “Gender Equality in Sports”.

The lecturers came from quite different backgrounds, for example “Right to Play”, The FA or UNAIDS. The participants also came in touch with some Korean culture while staying at Honam University in Gwangju or learning about basic Taekwondo techniques with representatives of the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF).
