6th April is the day for Peace and Sport

Posted by

WAKO is looking forward for tomorrow’s celebration of 6th April- International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.
Peace and Sport, the politically neutral organisation dedicated to promoting sport as a tool for peace, has launched its 2017 #WhiteCard campaign, inviting the world to show its commitment to global peace efforts.

We celebrate 6th April because sports, as a tool for education, development and peace, can promote cooperation, solidarity, tolerance, understanding, social inclusion and health at local, national and international levels.

This day comes after the UN General Assembly together with IOC declared it on August 23rd, 2013.
