A BPD Venture
SDG-OLYMPICS Announces Mission in Support of International Day of Sport (UN–IDSDP)
SDG-OLYMPICS Lauds IDSDP; and aims to create a powerful coalition between the UN, FIFA, IOC, & ICC to Bring Together Sports and Planetary Sustainability
Toronto, Canada & New York, NY: Today, SDG-OLYMPICS, announced their Mission is ‘To Ignite & Accelerate, Continuous & Sustainable Development for a Better Planet for All Life’ in support of the United Nations’ International Day of Sport for Development & Peace (IDSDP), an annual event since 2014
The UN recognises that Sport is a universal language, uniting groups and nations across divides; and that Sport is an important enabler of Sustainable Development because Sport empowers youth, promotes good health and deepens UN values such as equality, mutual respect and fair play while driving social change and meeting Millennium Development Goals, thus helping spread messages of peace.
Sport has the potential to advance human rights, eliminate barriers and promote global solidarity in a way that is fun, exciting, entertaining, and passionately followed across age, class, creed, and wealth; and thus, the IDSDP encourages all sport events and initiatives that the United Nations officially recognizes.
Despite the current health challenge faced, IDSDP remains a great opportunity for the sport and development community to showcase the ways sport has been helping countries, communities and individuals to live peaceful, prosperous lives.
SDG-OLYMPICS gratefully acknowledges the UN-IDSDP initiative for harnessing the power of Sport to keep humanity focussed on better post-pandemic futures for the Planet.
SDG-OLYMPICS was conceived by our sponsors with twin objectives …,
1. … To further emphasize the core-importance of Sports; that “Sports is Core to Sustainability”, and
2. … To accelerate innovation in Sustainable Development technologies across the world by engaging & powerfully activating the world’s largest audiences (as found at the Olympics and World Cups) with the Prestige, Cachet & Distinction of the UN such that “Sustainability is At the Heart of Sports”, in order to create a perpetual endowment for pre-eminent Awards akin to ‘Nobel Prizes for SDG accomplishment’
Our plan is to bestow this honour amidst athletic glory at the level of Heads-of-State with Grand Finales at the Olympics and World Cups, thus creating Planetary-scale outreach with Excitement and World Unity via Sport.
