World Marks International Day of Sport for Development and Peace
April 6 has been marked on the calendar as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. Organisations around the world are marking the day in their own ways.
Among those marking the day are sporting federations, including FIFA, the IOC and various Olympic committees, the Homeless World Cup, as well as organisations such as Laureus.
Sport has played a huge role in many changes in the landscape and offers opportunities to those who are less fortunate, but there is still a huge amount of work to do in order to create a completely peaceful world.
