Message for The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace

The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is an annual celebration of the power of sport to drive social change and community development and to foster peace and understanding.
Creating a historical link to the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, the United Nations General Assembly in 2013 declared 6 April as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.
Celebrating the day in 2019, a special event was held at the UN Headquarters on 3 April at which a video message was delivered by Koji Murofushi, Sports Director for the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, introducing Tokyo 2020's commitment to sustainability and the contribution to SDGs.
