Operating Method

Decision makers in politics and sport and local stakeholders are increasingly aware of the fundamental role of sport in building sustainable peace. Yet faced with complex situations, they often find it difficult to mobilize adequate resources or to establish required synergies.


Peace and Sport acts to promote sport as the focus of concerted, effective and relevant political action, thus becoming an essential tool at the service of peace.


To achieve this, Peace and Sport sets up international cooperation between political leaders, sport governing bodies, and actors from the private sector, peace organizations and civil society.


We have four different types of action:

  • A networking Platform and a Resource Centre to enhance collaboration between stakeholders
  • Locally-based Projects, programs based in the field
  • The Peace and Sport International Forum, a place where all stakeholders can meet and exchange ideas
  • The Peace and Sport Awards, to reward initiatives and individuals who make a difference in the field
