International Day of Sport for Development and Peace

In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated April 6 as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP). This day commemorates the significant role of sports and physical activity in fostering education, human development, healthy lifestyles, and a peaceful global environment.

IDSDP not only celebrates the positive impact of sports but also underscores how athletes and the Olympic Movement utilize sports to advocate for peace, reconciliation, and development. It emphasizes the influential role of the Olympic Games in promoting tolerance and solidarity among participants, fans, and people worldwide.

As part of the celebrations, individuals can show their commitment to global peace efforts by rallying around the symbol of a #WhiteCard.
