Why Sports?

Sport has the unique ability to address complex social issues in Israeli society, such as separation and tensions between different communities, gender inequality, socio-economic disparities, youth at-risk, high unemployment rates, violence in the Arab sector and more.

The explosive social and regional events of May 2021 and the impact of Covid-19 on grassroots organizations have led to unprecedented collaboration, including the launch of the first Sports for Social Change Coalition on a national scale.

About the Coalition

The Sports for Social Change Coalition is a growing movement of sports for peace and social change stakeholders in Israel who are working together to identify the needs of the field and find new solutions for all stakeholders (organizations, funders, government and corporate sectors, academia and community) for greater collective impact.

Sports is a powerful platform for social change.
