  • Workshop A: What is the best way to develop sports programs for peace with limited resources?

Lack of material resources, financial resources and specific skills are an obstacle to the implementation of sport in education for peace. The objective of this workshop is to give concrete tools to stakeholders in the field who wish to develop solutions adapted to their resources and their environment.

  • Workshop B: What are the alternatives to conventional financing for peace through sport programs?

The private sector’s support of actions for international solidarity is too often limited to a simple financial contribution, which can be revoked following budget restrictions. Faced with this risk NGOs and associations should diversify their funding sources by activating alternative donors and by mobilizing its internal resources. The objective of this workshop is to open new avenues of thought about sustainable resources to finance peace through sport programs.

Thursday 02 December

  • 09:00 – 11:00
    Plenary Session 1: Has sport contributed to peace in 2010?

Although sport can clearly make a contribution to peace, it can also be taken hostage by conflicts. The high visibility of some sporting events, which are the focus of media and spectator attention throughout the entire world, can provoke adverse action by those who want to be in the public eye.
Could events in Angola that surrounded the ANC be replicated under other circumstances? Did hosting the World Cup in South Africa have a positive impact on the African continent? Will safety become the organizers’ obsession? A comprehensive review of the past year is required.

    Networking Session

Are you a grassroots operator? A project finder? An initiator of public policies? An educator? A donor?
You're facing a specific problem in your area or you have adapted solutions to offer?
You want to take advantage of your presence at the 4th Peace and Sport International Forum to meet partners with complementary activities that will help you implement your projects for peace through sport effectively and sustainably?


The Peace and Sport Forum 2010 offers a full session uniquely dedicated to networking and face-to-face meetings to encourage direct contact between all delegates and increase cooperation.
To do this, Peace and Sport, in partnership with F2FX has integrated a tool into its website enabling everyone who has registered for the Forum to easily enter into contact with other delegates according to predetermined criteria.

  • 11:00 - 12:30
    Plenary Session 5: What is the best way to concretely foster better cooperation between stakeholders in the field?

This last session will aim to improve coordination between the various stakeholders involved in programs for peace through sport. Simultaneous initiatives that are individual and uncoordinated can reduce their scope and impact. How then can stakeholders be involved in a timely manner whilst encouraging their synergies?
Sports Federations, NGOs and governments will have to concretely determine ways of coordinating stakeholders, according to their skills and their knowledge of the local environment.
