The April 6 platform is now open!
The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, April 6, is celebrated each year through numerous initiatives and campaigns carried out by the actors of the Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) movement. Since the creation of the platform www.april6.org, more than 3000 projects in 180 countries have been registered.
This year, with the theme “Behind every #WhiteCard, there is a story” Peace and Sport wants to highlight the testimonies of real people who have personally or collectively measured the positive impact of a peace-through-sport project.
Through testimonies, faces, and memories of resilience, Peace and Sport wishes to demonstrate that sport is a formidable tool to fight against discrimination, as well as a means of fostering the transmission of structuring values and illuminating the path to more inclusive and peaceful societies.
We invite you to share your peace-through-sport stories on the platform www.april6.org and to broadcast them with a #WhiteCard on social media, as a sign of support to the peace-through-sport movement. These inspiring stories demonstrate the triumph of sport for development and peace. They are at the heart of the April 6 celebration.
About the April6 mobilization
In order to create an even stronger international mobilization around the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, Peace and Sport launched the platform www.april6.org, in 2014. The objective is to identify and promote all the initiatives organized around the world by federations, NOCs, clubs, associations, institutions and private actors, but also to identify inspiring stories which are the victories of peace through sport. This platform allows everyone to download all the elements necessary to mobilize and share their story.
