The Event

Save the Dream and Ooredoo will host the half-day forum “The GameChangers: Developing skills and promoting positive change through sport and its values” aimed at informing youth leaders living in Qatar (giving priority to 16 to 29 years of age) about the opportunities offered by sport to develop transversal skills, gain useful experiences, enhance international mobility, and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Over 300 youth leaders will participate in the event and interact with representatives from leading organizations like UNESCO, Generation Amazing, Aspire Academy, Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Josoor Institute and Qatar Youth Power among others, about how skills developed through sport can be transferred to other domains of their personal and professional lives and contribute to building a more inclusive society.
