India Active, Building a Sports bridge with Education

The report identifies the need to bridge the gap between education and sports to ensure the country’s youth get quality education and develop strong character as individuals. It also deep dives into the need to promote sports as an enabler of healthy life for children and adults, & to be able to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goal on “Good Health and Well-Being”. We believe, this paper is a small step towards bridging the gaps between sectors and making the relevant stakeholders think in this direction. The insights that the report has been able to gather from the survey indicate towards some significant and structured interventions in making sports an integral part of education, health and tourism in India. Moving beyond the sporting achievements to establish linkages and larger goals with these sectors will help retaining the primacy of sports and its goals, in true forms. For all these, joining hands together is the key!
