The City of Saint-Denis, in France, will host the UNESCO exhibition on the Power of Sport Values at the Stade de France, on 3 September 2016, during its Forum of the Sports Associations.

The exhibition will continue from 5 to 16 September at the Administrative Centre of Saint-Denis (2, Place du Caquet) and will be open according to the usual hours.

UNESCO, in the framework of an Education Partnership involving major sports stakeholders (the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education, the International Fair Play Committee, the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency) invites you on a journey to highlight the transformative power of sport all over the world.

Sport is a valuable tool for overcoming stereotypes, rising above exclusion and fostering citizenship. Sport values such as equality, inclusion, respect, and fairness can empower learners to become responsible, committed, and active in society.

Selected from hundreds of inspiring entries from more than 70 countries, these photos illustrate the power of sport in action, capturing flashes of joy, camaraderie, and solidarity.

The City of Saint-Denis wishes to defend and to promote this values towards its youth, for which sport, physical education and physical activities have an essential role in the collective and personal fulfillment. The French Federation of UNESCO clubs will participate to this event by enabling the highest number of children to visit the exhibition.
