This photobook is a tribute to the power of dreams and the integrity of sport. Its photographs speak volumes to the values we seek to enshrine – fair play, equality, respect and solidarity.

They transmit the magnificent spirit of global youth united in their determination to push the boundaries of achievement, rise above poverty and exclusion, overcome marginalization and test the very limits of personal endurance.

The social and physical roles of sport are especially relevant today, in a global context deeply challenged by discrimination, insecurity and violence. We believe in the unique potential of physical and sports education – in all of their diverse forms – to foster citizenship, nurture solidarity and consolidate peace.

This is the transformative power of sport. As the young basketball player Gemima said, “sport changes everything”. Our hope is that it will inspire you too.

Nada Al-Nashif, Assistant Director-General for Social and Human Sciences
