Lausanne, Switzerland|08.05.2009

Under the patronage the International Olympic Truce Foundation (IOTF) and the IOC's International Relations Commission, the Forum discussions will centre on themes such as the value of sport in supporting the community's search for peace and in achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals; how to maximise the impact of sport through partnerships with UN bodies; how to enhance youth empowerment through sport for development and peace programmes; and how to better measure the impact of physical activity on the development of deprived populations.

Furthermore, the question of how to pool resources and support to invest in sport for development cost-effectively is a question of the moment, which will be discussed among the Forum participants.
