A PLATFORM FOR STRATEGICAL LEADERS

Welcome to the 12th Edition of the Peace and Sport International Forum which will take place in the One Monte-Carlo, the newest conference centre in the heart of the Principality of Monaco.

Over the last decade, we have witnessed the continued growth of the peace-through-sport movement with outstanding actions and numerous sport-based programs that have benefited individuals and communities at local, national and international levels throughout the world.
