2021 Peace and Sport Awards

logo_header

The Peace and Sport Awards 2021 will reward inspiring change makers!

In 2020, Peace and Sport was eager to reward individuals and organizations that have continued to use sport to serve communities and to promote peace through best practices in sport. Despite challenging times, sport remained essential to promote values such as respect, unity and solidarity.

In 2021, Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) actors kept playing a fundamental role in bringing hope and courage to the most vulnerable communities. To conclude this year of inspiring stories and concrete and ambitious field actions, Peace and Sport will organize a second edition of the Peace and Sport digital Awards and reward outstanding initiatives. Through the Awards, we will invite you to meet SDP actors and discover the best peace-through-sport practices!

Behind the Awards, there are committed change makers who are making a real difference in their communities. Behind the Awards, there is positive change through sport!
