March in review & Intl day of Sport for Development and Peace

"There is no more powerful platform for promoting shared values than sport."

Irina Bokova
UNESCO Director-General

Today, the 6 April we are celebrating the 4th International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. 

In August 2013, the sixty-seventh session of the UN General Assembly decided to proclaim 6 April as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.

"Due to its vast reach, unparalleled popularity and foundation of positive values, sport is ideally positioned to contribute towards the United Nations’ objectives for development and peace."


In August 2014, the World Youth Forum on Sport, Culture, and Peace was organized by UNESCO and the Nanjing Municipal Government, bringing young men and woman together from across the world to explore common challenges and solutions.

"Sport is a way to include everyone."
Irina Bokova
UNESCO Director-General

According to UNICEF play is not only a child’s inalienable right – it also influences physical, socio-emotional and cognitive development. 
The right to play is protected in Article 31 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as the right to sport, which is specifically contained in other international treaties. 
In European schools, i'ts the last week before Spring break. Teachers will find a way to include the values of sport in cross-curricular project led by Sport teacher.
