International Day of Sport for Development And Peace 2016 Wishes Quotes Slogans Images

International Day of Sport for Development And Peace 2016 Wishes Quotes Slogans Images : Today is April 6 and it is the United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, which recognizes the power of sport in promoting peace and erasing cultural barriers worldwide.

To raise awareness of this potential, 6 April was declared as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) by the UN General Assembly. International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is a global observance and not a public holiday.

“Sport has the capacity to empower individuals and bring one’s moral values to the forefront; it can play a strategic role in transferring life skills and communicating useful, encouraging messages on important issues, thus driving social change. This new commemoration on the international calendar will further promote the value of sport as a catalyst for development and peace.”

This year the world is embarking on a major new challenge – implementing the visionary 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. United Nations Member States have adopted 17 universal Sustainable Development Goals to build a future of peace, justice, dignity and opportunity for all.
