Jan Eliasson headlines April 6th Conference at Bosön

The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) is an annual celebration that highlights and promotes the power of sport as a catalyst for social change in all corners of the world. Since  2014,  following a  decision by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, the IDSDP has been celebrated  each year on 6 April, creating a historical link to the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. 

The Power of Sport Foundation will host the first conference of its kind celebrating the day on April 6th, 2017 at Bosön, just north of Stockholm.

Former Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson, Carolina Klüft, Hans Vestberg, Kim Källström, Therese Alshammar and more will be joined by participants from 2017 UN Camp Sweden at the event aimed at celebrating the role sport can play in making a social change.
