International Day of Sport for Development and Peace 2020

On April 6 Village joins Peace and Sport to celebrate the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSPDP).

As the world faces such difficult and trying times due to the global pandemic, we believe it is extremely important to stand together against the challenge and fight through global solidarity and unity. The current circumstances are asking unprecedented strength and effort from us, but we are sure that sport, thanks to the ideals of equity, unity and peace that it holds within itself, can be the key to start again stronger than before, once the emergency has ended.

To celebrate the IDSDP, Peace and Sport has created an initiative called #WhiteCard, and Village responds to this call with pictures from Milan Junior Camps (2018) in Bergamo, Italy – which is deeply meaningful, due to Bergamo being one of the most affected cities in the Country by COVID-19 – and Astana, Kasakhstan.

These pictures are testimony to what sport has done and can do: educate and unite people from all over the world. As H.S.H Prince Albert of Monaco said “The message behind the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, celebrated on April 6, comes into full play in the current context. Using sport to protect our planet and reinforce our bonds with each other“.

Today we stand – virtually – with Peace and Sport and everyone celebrating worldwide to bring a message of hope, knowing that our strength lies in our unity. In this sense, Village commits to continue working, in view of what’s to come.

Where Sport meets…Village: new challenges for Sport Events

Innovation in Action” was the theme of six days of meetings, conferences and top-level networking at SportAccord Convention 2017 in Aahaus in Denmark.

Its aim is to drive positive change internationally and create a great opportunity of engagement and connection among rights holders, organizing committees, cities, press and media, businesses and other organizations involved in the development of sport.

The SportAccord Convention’s stakeholders represent more than 100 International Sports Federations and organize their Annual General Assemblies at the SportAccord Convention.


We debated and shared opinions and know-how on how the sport world can evolve globally in the future.

A collaborative spirit between key decision-makers in sport has characterized the Convention and we discovered the best practices from industry thought-leaders.

We are ready for new challenges in sport events, thanks to this great opportunity at SportAccord Convention 2017.

See you in April 2018 for the next edition of Sport Accord Convention in Bangkok, Thailand!
