Ready for the 2019 Peace and Sport Awards ceremony?

The Peace and Sport Awards is an opportunity to reward those working hard to promote sport for good around the world. There are eight award categories, and the application deadline is 10 September 2019.

This year, you can be recognised and honoured for your devotion to making sport a tool for peace by participating in the Peace and Sport Awards. Winning this award goes way beyond winning a trophy. It means that you have made an outstanding contribution to peace, dialogue and social change in the world through sport.

Throughout the years, the Peace and Sport Awards have become a real reference in the peace-through-sport movement: the winners of this prestigious prize are now considered as a source of inspiration. From local field programmes to global initiatives, the winners have one thing in common: they lead projects which are representative of sport’s capacity to reconcile divided or opposed communities.

This year the Peace and Sport Awards Ceremony will be held in the Principality of Monaco on 12 December – a key event in the 2019 Peace and Sport International Forum.
