“Peace and Sport, L’Organisation pour la Paix par le Sport” (known as Peace and Sport) was founded in 2007 by Modern Pentathlon Olympic medallist and world champion Joel Bouzou, who is the current President of the organization. It works for sustainable peace, throughout the world. To achieve this, it promotes the practice of structured sport and sporting values to educate young generations and help foster social stability, reconciliation and dialogue between communities.
An international initiative at the service of peace, Peace and Sport intervenes in areas made vulnerable by extreme poverty, recent conflict or lack of social cohesion. Peace and Sport is a neutral and apolitical organization based in Monaco, a global initiative under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
Our vision is to turn no-man’s lands into sports grounds, to reintegrate child soldiers into society, to help war orphans regain self confidence, to integrate refugees, to help the poor have access to education, and establish a spirit of citizenship in disadvantaged urban areas…all thanks to sport.
Five principle values guide our action:
- Operational capacity
- Flexibility of intervention
