Lipjan, Kosovo

Run for Peace [postponed]

For nearly 20 years, PLAY International has been involved in Kosovo using sports play as a vehicle for education and social change. The socio-sports activities offered by the NGO are designed to integrate all groups into society regardless of ethnicity, gender or ability. The games are designed to encourage active learning, improve young people's self-confidence and teach fundamental values such as fair play, respect (for oneself, others and rules) and team spirit.


On 6 April PLAY will celebrate the International Day of Sport for Peace with a Run for Peace in the municipality of Lipjan/Lipljan. The objective here is to promote the many programs deployed by PLAY in the municipality but also to ensure the strengthening of links between local and international actors promoting diversity and cooperation between the different communities that populate Kosovo.

More than 100 children will take part in a race of almost one kilometer. After their efforts, each of them will be entitled to a snack and refreshments.
