Sports can play a key role in combating discrimination, promoting human rights, resilient communities, tolerance and inclusive communities. Within this context, social responsibility is linked with sports organization, as there is a common ground of activities for promoting positive social impact. For this reason, it is crucial to increase sports organizations’ capacities and abilities to implement socially responsible behaviour and lead awareness on social issues by enhancing their organizational governance in the context of social responsibility. This is important not only for professional teams and clubs, but also for all types of for-profit and non-profit sports organizations, such as semi-professional and amateur sports clubs, (multi)sports clubs and sports academies etc.
GoSport focuses on the incorporation of social responsibility within the organizational strategy of sports organizations in order to bring them closer to society and to raise awareness on societal issues.
