Peace and Sport International Forum
9th edition - This year, over 500 leading figures from the worlds of sport, politics, academia, the private sector and civil society will convene over three days to focus on how sport can help to foster sustainable peace and forge agents of change committed to act for a better, fairer and more united world.
Ignacio Packer, Secretary General of Terre des Hommes, is among the speaker of the plenary Session:
Moving toward Longstanding Legacies in Sport
Hosting major sporting events can transform a city and its people for a lifetime and secure a positive future long after the event concludes. Mega-sport events have the potential to create a unique set of social, cultural and economic legacies that can positively change a community, a region, or even a nation. Whilst hosting a major international event can be seen as an end in itself, it also offers a great opportunity for the host country to achieve development, peace and progress for its people.
How can global events do more to foster local social, cultural and economic legacies, both short term and long term? What can different stakeholders (athletes, sport bodies, governments and international organizations) do to ensure that major sporting events leave a real legacy for future generations?
