Peace and Sport is delighted to present its April6 fifth edition report dedicated to the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.

On 23 August 2013 the UN General Assembly with the support of the International Olympic Committee declared 6 April as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. This decision represented a historic step in recognising the transformative power of sport and its boundless potential to advance positive social change.

To celebrate the 5th International Day of Sport for Development and Peace on 6 April, Peace and Sport encouraged the international community to engage in activities to promote the positive values of sport. This record-breaking mobilisation resulted in 90 million people reached on social media by the symbolic 2018 #WhiteCard campaign.

This report highlights some of these impactful and inspiring initiatives that took place this year.
