International Day of Sport for Development and Peace

April 6 is observed as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace of the United Nations. On this day, the global sporting community joins the campaign to promote sport as a tool for peace-building, peace-keeping and international development.

This year, the World Curling Federation celebrates the day with a photo gallery of our athletes and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

The World Curling Federation also joins the #WhiteCard campaign initiated by Peace and Sport to unite behind this symbol of hope and global solidarity through sport.

World Curling Federation President, Kate Caithness, said: “Today we join with the sporting community to unite behind the WhiteCard campaign as a symbol of hope and solidarity. In these difficult times, this campaign and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide the world with a shared vision for peace and prosperity now and in the future.

“We invite the curling family to spread the campaign on social media by raising your own white card to demonstrate your support for peace through sport.”
