Celebrating the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace 2016, UNESCO is pleased to announce the launch of an online campaign promoting the role of sport in delivering values education.

To tackle 21st century challenges – inactivity, conflict, unemployment – we need innovative, active and socially relevant education. We can support the delivery of this through the introduction of sport values in school curricula.

Sport is more than a bridge between individuals and nations, it can also be 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 be responsible, engaged, and active in society.

To promote the power of sport values, UNESCO is pleased to share with you:
