Beyond Sport Mexico taking place between November 15th and 17th, 2017 will see a unique partnership between Cámara de Diputados (Chamber of Deputies), Secretaría de Educación Pública (Ministry of Education), Beyond Sport, the World Boxing Council (WBC) and Alazraki Sports come to life for the first time to develop best practice on how Mexico can leverage the commodity of sport to create social good within the country.
Taking place in Mexico City, Beyond Sport Mexico will be the inaugural gathering of its kind in the country in a region of the world that has developed truly innovative and ground-breaking sport for development work throughout its communities.
A major part of the impact and legacy from this partnership will be the Beyond Sport Mexico Communities Award, which will champion and provide funding for an organization, project, or program based in Mexico that is using sport to create positive social change in their community.
The Award will celebrate various projects using sport’s role to promote either education, conflict resolution, health or equality.
The deadline for award entries is Friday October 6, with the Official Shortlist being announced later in the month, and the winner being presented on November 15th at the Welcome Reception of Beyond Sport Mexico.
