This video stemmed from a discussion about sport and (in? for?) international development. Sport is extremely powerful. Apparently, FIFA has more member countries than the U.N. Organizations like Right to Play claim to bring a whole lot of good through football:
“Sport for development is a tool to help make the world healthier and safer, to build opportunities for children to grow physically, emotionally, and socially. They learn respect for themselves, for rules, for their teammates, respect for their own communities and for other communities. When kids play, the world wins.”
While this plan sounds and looks fantastic, it's a little vague just how exactly playing sports will lead to global "development, health and peace." The good intention may be there, but the methodology details are a bit fuzzy to me.
In the meantime, I'm all for "Anything a man can do, a woman can do."
