We’re thrilled to announce that our Playdagoy programme, working in parternship with PLAY International, has been shortlisted for the Beyond Sport Social Innovation Award 2016! 24/8/2016
A huge congratulations to our Playdagogy team, who have worked with 28 organisations, 128 educators, and reached more than 1,700 children over the last year. Through their hard work, we’re harnessing the transformative and unifying power of sport to tackle the root causes of social injustice.
We know that children who play together learn to work together and to accept and respect each other’s different abilities. Playdagogy uses an evidence-based methodology to engage children creatively in recognising, understanding and addressing social issues through participation in sport.
By inserting educational messages into sporting activities, Playdagogy teaches children about challenges related to different social issues, using experiential learning and symbolic interaction. This enables them to explore ways to overcome these issues by critically reflecting on their environment, social attitudes, behaviour and knowledge.
We provide training and resources to teachers, sports coaches and community organisations interested in using Playdagogy session in their school, sports club or youth centre
