#edvOcate - National Sport Day
EAA, through its edvocate campaign, hosted a sporting activity, using sports as its medium of creative advocacy to promote principles of team building, inclusion and unity, participation, fitness and health. The inaugural event of edvocate’s sports stream saw a fruitful collaboration with Qatar Stars League ambassadors and players, allowing for wide-reaching, the non-traditional medium of sports as a platform of advocacy and awareness-raising.
The event saw different EAA mandated activities played, hosting education-related games with football elements, and principles of gender equality, unity, and respect for diversity and peacebuilding attitudes.
This involved a multi-stationed obstacle course, where teams, led by EAA Youth, compete in each activity station. Certain reflection games after certain stations allowed attendees to apply EAA-mandated information, and to discuss activities and key values they gained from said activities.
