Get ready for International Day of Sport for Development and Peace on 6 April!
26 March 2021
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.
As official partner of Peace and Sport, also this year the EOC will join the #WhiteCard campaign and invites 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.
