Sign the Champions for Peace Manifesto
The Champions for Peace club is composed of high-level sportsmen and women personally committed to the peace-through-sport movement. These athletes, who dedicate their time and fame to make sport a tool for dialogue and social cohesion, have become role-models and a true inspiration for youth around the world. On 2019 the Champions for Peace celebrated their 10th anniversary by launching a global appeal ‘The Champions for Peace Manifesto’. Through this manifesto, they are asking athletes, the sports movement, political and institutional decision-makers and, more broadly, the general public, to join them in their action for the next ten years to maximize sport for development and peace.
10 ideas for the new decade
We want this appeal to be concrete. Words are not enough. There are many other commitments that can be made to maximize sport as a tool for peace, but we have decided to endorse these engagements, and they belong to you. On our own, they would open doors. But with all of you, they can really make a difference.
Some of these ideas can be achieved in the short or medium term, others require patience. Peace through sport is not built in a day. But as Champions for Peace, we are committed to following the path of these 10 ideas for the new decade step by step. And we undertake to get together in 10 years’ time to make an inventory of the actions actually carried out and the forgotten projects.
