Sports

A free Student to World online course from Global Nomads Group

Sports

Learn about the relationship between sports, being our best selves, and how sports have been used to celebrate the best of everybody.

Explore the meaning of sports in local communities, the opportunities and costs of participating in sports, and how racism, classism, sexism and ableism play into people’s experiences of sports in a global context. With unique features including personal video testimonials and tips for taking concrete action, youth learn about how sports shape our lives, cultures, and opportunities.

Global Nomads Group leverages the power of storytelling to promote empathy and bring social issues to life through day-to-day realities. Read real, impactful, stories from youth participants around the world that reveal deep truths about global issues. Then youth can enhance the conversation by sharing their own stories with fellow Student to World users and participate in moderated live conversations.
