The overall theme is “together through sport”. For all of us in this turbulent year, sport has proven itself vital to restore physical and mental health, inspire and energize us, and create solidarity as we team up to beat COVID-19. Sport also helps those who face the hardest possible times in their lives to rebuild their futures. You can use your talents to illustrate the power of sport to bring people together.
Here are some things to think about to inspire you:
Sport brings hope. Sport is a great way to heal after going through difficult times. It helps with our mental health during the pandemic. It helps refugees recover from the experience of war and persecution. Learn more.
Sport fosters inclusion. Sport is a great way to bring people together. When young refugees find safety in a new country, playing with others in the community helps them make friends and feel like they belong.
Sport inspires. We all love to watch our favourite athletes. Did you know that there is a Refugee Olympic Team and a Refugee Paralympic Team? For the second time in history, they will compete during the Games in Tokyo this summer!
Deadline for Application is June 25 2021.
Who won the 2020 edition?
