To build peaceful communities through the power of sport, and thereby create a safer, more equitable and inclusive world.
We believe that sustainable peace can be significantly advanced through the powerful catalyst of sport.
What we do and how we work
Peace and Sport is built around four key pillars: Mobilize, Connect, Demonstrate, Advocate.
The organization takes concrete action to prove the federating, educational and social impact of sport through sport diplomacy initiatives and field programs with the support of our Champions for Peace club.
Peace and Sport brings together and develops partnerships between the Peace (NGOs, UN Agencies, Academics), the Sport (Olympic Family, International Federations, National Olympic Committees, Athletes) and the Political worlds with the aim of implementing and ensuring the sustainability of field programs, maximizing the use of sport for development and peace and leading social transformation in every area of the world affected by poverty or social instability.
Peace and Sport acts in close collaboration with international reference organisations and in partnership with UNESCO and UNHCR.
