International Day of Sport for Development and Peace
6 April, 2021
The World Health Organization recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week, or a combination of both. In addition to health benefits, sport is a fundamental right, and a powerful tool to strengthen social ties and to promote sustainable development, peace, solidarity and respect. International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is to position and exploit the vast reach, popularity and foundation of positive values of sport to contribute towards the United Nations’ objectives for development and peace.
