Climate change directly affects people’s livelihoods. SA4D uses sport and play based activities aiming to strengthen environmental awareness.
An intact physical environment is the foundation for human and socio-economic development. Global challenges such as climate change directly affect people’s livelihoods, especially those of the most vulnerable populations.
SA4D acknowledges the interdependency of human livelihood and environmental resources and addresses environmental issues in a cross-cutting manner – on all levels throughout their projects and partnerships. Within those, SA4D and its project partners recognise the close interconnection between the rights of children and youth, the SDGs and the protection of the environment.
Therefore, SA4D uses sport and play based activities aiming to strengthen awareness about environmental challenges, to foster resilience on climate change or to develop skills for sustainable income generation, such as “green skills”, which support vulnerable people in leading a decent life in harmony with and taking care of their natural environment.
