Working Zone 4: 5 October 2018  11:30 - 12:50

Working Zone Solidarity

Today, the world is impacted by divisions, and migrants, refugees, people of differing cultures and faiths, and other marginalised populations are too often left out. Dialogue and respect for different perspectives are essential in the age of globalisation, and sport provides a useful tool for promoting social inclusion. Furthermore, sport’s ability to contribute to sustainable development can be leveraged to work towards decreasing poverty, therefore promoting social inclusion on an economic level as well. This working zone aims to explore how sport can bridge the divisions that currently exist in societies around the world, with the goal of promoting inclusion and creating cohesive communities.
