What the UN Sustainable Development Agenda and Resulting Sports Sector Movement Towards Inclusion Means for APA
The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and associated goals (SDGs) represent a major global unified momentum to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. This shift from declaration to action is echoed within the global sports sector through the policy convergence of various human rights treaties, physical education and physical activity developments, and the SDGs culminating in the Kazan Action Plan which has inclusion at its core. The Kazan Action Plan is framework which fully integrates the SDGs, inclusion, and integrity in the fields of physical education, physical activity and sport, aiming to align relevant international and national policy and foster capacity-building efforts of governmental authorities and sport organisations. This unprecedented concerted effort towards inclusion at the policy level needs is strengthened when met, supported and even driven by engagement and advocacy of APA professionals and leaders in practice and in our communities and organisations.

Aisling is a researcher at the UNESCO Chair with responsibility for the development and implementation of global citizenship training and education resources with the specific aim of bridging the global policy practice gap to facilitate inclusive practice in physical education, physical activity, and sport.
