The conference “Sport for Development and Peace”, held in the NOC of Portugal, on 6 April 2017, provided an opportunity to debate sport has an overriding role in process of social integration and bridging political, religions, racial and socioeconomic cleavages.
We believe, with this event, pledge to influence policies, and foster public debate, to support refugee´s integration, remaining mindful of the enormous threats we faced, acknowledging that only with our collective effort we will create a better world for future generations.
