The 1st Boston Roundtable for Sport and Peace
Building on the 1st Cape Town Sport and Peace Conference held on the occasion of the Cape Town, South Africa Marathon and World Peace Day in 2014, the 1st Boston Roundtable for Sport and Peace is dedicated to promoting awareness and visibility of sport as a means of building peace within communities, and for youth more specifically.
In the season of the Boston Marathon and the International Day for Sport, Development, and Peace you are invited to join us to promote sport and peace worldwide. The event is free and open to the public, but advanced registration is required (details below). In an interactive format the Boston Sport and Peace Roundtable will address 4 key questions:
- What are the challenges young people face in navigating a world of increasing conflict and turmoil?
- What are the opportunities for communities of practice for Sport to address the challenges facing youth, communities, and nations?
- What can we learn from examples from around the globe of successful sport for social change and peace building initiatives?
- Cooperation and networking around the world: How can we jointly use Sport to create positive alternatives that celebrate diversities and counter violence and divisions?
