To celebrate the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace on 6 April, the IFA joins the #WhiteCard campaign to highlight the power of sport to overcome challenges and positively impact our lives

Sport has the power to change the world; it is a fundamental right, a powerful tool to strengthen social ties and promote sustainable development and peace and well as solidarity, and respect. Through our unique individual skills and collective power, we can come together and share creative ways to improve our health and well-being through sport and physical activity.

This day is commemorated globally each year by international, regional, national sport and develop-ment organizations to honor the role that sport plays in society, whether by encouraging healthier life-styles, making sport more widely accessible or using it as a vehicle for development in areas made vulnerable by conflict, poverty and inequality.

Since 2014 the Peace and Sport Foundation developed the #WhiteCard Campaign as a sign of your commitment to peace efforts worldwide.

Join the global movement, share your story and send a message of unity and solidarity! #IDSDP #OnlyTogether @peaceandsport
