Peace And Sport

Objectives and Mission: 

Using and promoting sport as a tool for building and promoting peace. Peace and Sport aims to: (i) convince governments, international organizations and private sector enterprises of the essential value of practising sport as a language of peace; (ii) raise awareness among sport decision-makers – international and national federations, national committees and sporting clubs – of the extension well beyond the scope of the sport society of all practices that they manage; (iii) work to improve governance in the field of sport; (iv) encourage private enterprises to take into account the development of sport in determining their social responsibility policies and support for local community development; (v) propose and support public-private partnerships; and (vi) change major sponsors’ behaviour so that they are commited to more than merely associating sport images with their products.
