How it came about
Sport Cares was established as a consulting agency with a focus on Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) in 2009. The increasing relevance of good governance and sport policy also within SDP led to a re-calibration of the activities pursued towards the current focus. Its incorporator, Mr. Jonas Burgheim, draws from his experience acquired as Policy and Projects Officer/Deputy Head of the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP). His level of expertise attained during the responsible work with a wide range of policy partners, a broad network in the sport policy field, his experience from working in international relations just like in a leading European research funding foundation have been the basis for a broad range of relevant files and cases completed successfully. With his scientific background as a Bachelor of Laws and Master of European Law focussing on Human Rights and Foreign Trade as well as with his experience in public policy, Mr. Burgheim carries the central capacities to address the needs of Sport Cares' clients. He is convinced of the necessity for further progress towards good evolution and implementation of sport policy and pursues this ambition with a strong commitment.
