Young people between 18 and 30 years old advocating for sport and development are invited to apply for the UNESCO Sport and the SDGs Youth Funshop. The event will be held in Seoul, South Korea, from 5th to 8th of September 2019.

UNESCO is searching for young leaders from Asia and the Pacific to participate in the 2019 Sport & the SDGs youth FUNSHOP. This is a three-day event specially designed to advance the capabilities of youth activists who are using sport as a tool for sustainable development and peace.

Participants in the Funshop will have the opportunity to become members of the UNESCO Youth and Sport Task Force, a vibrant network of young leaders established in November 2017 following the first Sport Funshop held in Manila, Philippines.

Sixty outstanding young leaders from various countries around Asia-Pacific will join the Korean youth to participate in intensive workshops, sport activities and networking events over three days in Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Main criteria

  • Aged between 18 – 30 years (as of 31 December 2019);
  • Leading or playing an active role in a sports-based social project;
  • A resident in an Asia-Pacific country (see complete list)

Participation is fully funded. Organizers cover return flights to Seoul, accommodation and meals during the 3-day event and local transportation in Seoul. However, please note, that visa costs will not be covered by UNESCO.
