2020 International Day of Sport for Development and Peace Campaign
The COVID-19 pandemic is spreading to more countries, territories and regions of the world at an alarming rate and physical and social distancing practices are becoming commonplace to stop the spread of the disease. The closure of gyms, sport facilities and stadiums, public pools, dance studios, and playgrounds mean that many of us are not able to actively participate in individual or group sporting or physical activities, nor watch live sporting events. As a result, the global sporting community is facing serious challenges due to measures imposed in countless countries around the world.

On 6 April 2020, the IDSDP will be a moment when UNESCO will join the global efforts to encourage everyone to be active, stay well and demonstrate solidarity during this period of physical and social distancing. This team spirit will help us all get through the current challenges together.

UNESCO Almaty Cluster Office in cooperation with the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan intends to launch an online information campaign in the framework of the International Day of Sports for Development and Peace, which emphasizes the importance of physical activity and sports in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle to limit the impact of COVID-19.
