Skopje, 7 December 2017 (MIA) - President Gjorge Ivanov addressing Thursday the participants of the 10th Peace and Sport International Forum, held in Monaco, said that the sport contributes to reconciliation, helps in bringing people together and in overcoming today’s challenges, President's Cabinet said in a press release.
“Sport is a factor that contributes not only to reconciliation, but to achieving those values that are necessary for a society to build a healthy generation, because young people are those who most need what the sport offers - competition and building healthy people, in a healthy society that will be simply dedicated to peace and prosperity,” Ivanov said.
Ivanov noted that these international forums contribute in finding solutions to global problems and challenges, underscoring the need for innovation and creativity in sport.
The Peace and Sport International Forum brings together leading figures from the worlds of sport and peace in order to share best practices. This year heralds the organization’s tenth anniversary, and the Forum’s theme of “Sport innovation for social transformation” emphasizes the importance of social innovation as a tool to help societies transform through sport.
As the largest global event convening the world of sport for peace, each year, the Forum has united more than 500 major decision-makers from over 110 countries including Head of States, Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, sports governing bodies and high level athletes, international organizations, NGOs and academia.
Ivanov is scheduled to hold bilateral meeting with Prince Albert II of Monaco in the frameworks of the forum. sk/14:13
