WHEN SPORT LEARNS, TEACHES AND TRANSMITS PEACEâ€¦
Founded in 2007 by Modern Pentathlon Olympic Medallist and World Champion JoÃ«l Bouzou, Peace and Sport is a neutral and independent worldwide organization that is operational in using sport and its values as an instrument for peace.
In less than 10 years, the dynamism of sport has already enabled us to reinsert child soldiers back into society, to help war orphans rebuild their self-confidence, to reintegrate refugees, facilitate access to education, and more…
The use of sport as a pedagogic tool has motivated the international sports movement into tangible action. In parallel, our success in the field has made political leaders and governments aware of how sport can be a genuine and effective mechanism for peace.
Furthermore, we are increasingly working with international companies, to encourage them to integrate sport into their social responsibility and local policies.
