The theme of cultural diversity will be highlighted and work of UNESCO and the United Nations in this regard promoted.
The practice of sport is a recognized instrument for promoting peace, as it disregards both geographical borders and social classes. It also plays a significant role as a promoter of social integration in different geographical, cultural and political contexts. Sport is indeed a powerful tool to strengthen social ties and networks, and to promote solidarity, non-violence, tolerance and justice.
