International Day of Sport for Development and Peace

April 6th – WhiteCard Campaign by Peace and Sport

27 March 2017 - 10 April 2017

To celebrate April 6, International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) established by the United Nations General Assembly and the International Olympic Committee on 2013, Peace and Sport is inviting NGO’s to join the celebrations.


Following three successful editions, April 6 is an important day, which recognizes the transformative power of sport as a tool for peace and development and its great potential in advancing positive social change. Peace and Sport invites you to join this day by:


- Organize a symbolic event (debate, exhibition…) and register it on the platform www.april6.org


- Demonstrate your support for the peace through sport by participating in the social media campaign #WhiteCard. Snap yourself holding a white card, like a referee on a playing field. Then post it on social media with #WhiteCard #IDSDP2017.


Don’t hesitate to take your picture facing a famous and symbolic place, including UNESCO World Heritage sites!
