As a Social Enterprise it is important to us to continue supporting Global projects inline with our values and Agenda 2030.
Sustainable development goals
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.
Through NYSAs mission we strive to support all human beings to fulfil their potential in dignity and equality and in a healthy environment.
Football For Humanity
At NYSA Sweden we have worked in partnership with Football For Humanity for over 3 years. Focusing on our shared mission to support the potential in everyone and provide them with the best tools and environment for their personal growth and development.
Football for Humanity use the power of play to educate, empower and protect children facing the threat of abuse, exploitation and violence.
Our joint projects reached over 500 coaches and children in poverty driven areas of the world.
In 2022 NYSA and Football for Humanity collaborated with the British Embassy in the GREAT campaign. Over a period of 4 days NYSA delivered workshops focussed on empowering coaches and players to overcome culture challenges for women/girls within sport.
During practical sessions, Owen Southgate from NYSA, encouraged sports leaders to explore the the training environment as a space for exploration, curiosity and creativity, with playful interaction as the focus for learning.
Since July 2019 NYSA Sweden has supported over 180 coaches within the Philippines through a national tour of sports leadership education. NYSA’s ‘World class leadership’ 3 day course was intensively delivered into six key cities including Manila, Davao and Marawi, blending the best theoretical and practical components within modern coaching practice.
Launching in 2023, NYSA Sweden is proudly collaborating on Rugby Players Irelands HERFORM+ EU funded project.
HERFORM+ assists female high-performance athletes to develop the core skills needed in senior high-performance sport as well as to succeed on their long-term personal development.
The challenges female athletes face in comparison to men are different; individually, within topics such as identity, self-care, mental health, communication, or vocational development; and institutionally linked to the type of high performance environments and extent of programmatic infrastructure, especially in team sports.
Research does not yet fully live up to this diversity of support requirements. Neither do practices in place. Programmes in women’s sport are either based on male athlete demands with an ad-hoc translation into the new environment, or are entirely missing.
This is where HERFORM+ comes into play!
Gender specific, evidence based, multi-disciplinary, and digitally supported.
In 2022, NYSA Sweden entered EU funded project COMPATH to support the educational, professional and personal development of young athletes-students (16-25 aged).
Through a ‘‘Competence Hub on Sport Innovation’’, the project aims to built a community of young athletes-students will acquire the skills and competencies to increase their employability in the sports industry.
The project will develop educational resources in order to touch both the careers and perspectives of young student-athletes by showing sports-oriented technology and 21st century skills, business world, entrepreneurship and different thinking and literacy methods.
