Commonwealth Youth Sport for Development and Peace Working Group (CYSD)

Call for new members

The CYSDP are looking for young people active and passionate in the field of sport for development and peace to join their working group

In May 2013 the Commonwealth Secretariat supported the establishment of the Commonwealth Youth Sport for Development and Peace Working Group (CYSDP). With a mission ‘to be the leading and driving voice for youth in the Commonwealth towards promoting best practices for sport, development and peace in their respective societies.’

A group of young leaders from Commonwealth regions were identified by the Commonwealth Secretariat and selected to work towards advancing youth development in the Commonwealth through sport. With a remit to ‘Advocate, Educate and Demonstrate’ on behalf of young people across the Commonwealth, the group utilise sport and non-sport platforms to highlight the benefits of SDP in development issues. The group are an integral part of the Commonwealth youth space and intend to continue to do their work by accessing the voices of young people, targeting decision makers, educating both youth practitioners and SDP experts on how best to advocate for their issues, and providing research to contribute to bodies of knowledge which bring to the fore youth issues in the SDP sector.
