International Day of Sport for Development and Peace: Scoring for People and the Planet
The annual commemoration, now in its 10th year, highlights the positive role sport plays in communities and lives across the globe.
The 2023 global theme for the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is “Scoring for People and the Planet.” This theme builds on previous years’ themes and provides a broad framework for IDSDP activities that highlight the positive effects of sports on sustainable development and peace. It emphasizes the role of sports in promoting environmental sustainability and social well-being, as well as the importance of using sports as a tool for achieving these goals.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the day, the UN Department of Global Communications in collaboration with UN DESA, and the Permanent Missions of Monaco and Qatar to the UN hosted an in-person event in the ECOSOC Chamber at the UN Headquarters in New York. The recording is available on YouTube.
