Video interviews on international cooperation on sport for all

Play the Game spoke to Alison Burchell and Louise Bezerra about UNESCO's 'Kazan Action Plan' and the potential of international cooperation on sport for all as a lever to change sport on a local level.

In the interview, Alison Burchell, permanent secretary of youth & sports at the Ministry of Youth and Sports in Fiji, talks about how international policy papers and international cooperation can change sport on a local level, and how ministries can work with sport based on these policy papers. 

Louise Bezerra, executive director of Atletas pelo Brasil, talks about the importance of having an international discussion about sport for all and how international cooperation, such as UNESCO's Kazan Action Plan, can help improve local legislation on grassroots sport and sport for all.
