Generations For Peace celebrates first ever International Day of Sport for Development and Peace

2014-04-09

Celebrating the first IDSDP, Generations For Peace volunteers in fifteen countries led activities to demonstrate how sport can be used as a powerful tool to bridge gender, religious and ethnic divides in their communities.

Generations For Peace volunteers in Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Georgia, Indonesia, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Uganda and Yemen joined the worldwide call to action. 

HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, founder and chairman of Generations For Peace, emphasised the significance of IDSDP: “I was delighted when the UN General Assembly declared 6 April as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. This is an important day to engage children and youth in sport.

 It helps promote and boost the work that our Generations For Peace volunteers around the world are carrying out each day and week to lead change in their own communities. They are using sport as a powerful entry point to engage with children and youth to raise awareness and help tackle local issues of conflict and violence, inequality and exclusion, and social development.”
