Many people are working in isolation and with limited resources, and yet around the world many individuals and organizations are bringing about exciting changes resulting in fairer opportunities for girls and women in sport and physical activity. A consolidation of successful strategies and tools for change are contained in the Montreal Tool Kit.
The Montreal Tool Kit is a reference manual that contains 20 tools to help delegates in their challenges to bring about change in their own community, organization, region, or nation. The tools and resources included in this document support evidence that sport and physical activity have the capacity to enhance health and well being; build leadership; social and democratic skills; stimulate economic regeneration; help alleviate the negative effects of poverty; improve learning; enhance productivity; and provide people with an enhanced quality of life. Ensuring sport and physical activity is accessible and affordable to all people should be a priority for all decision-makers. However, for girls and women special efforts are needed if the gender gap is ever to be eliminated.
