IDF will attend the PEACE AND SPORT MIDDLE-EAST FORUM 2023!

International Dart Federation will attend officially the Peace and Sport Middle-East Forum in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The International Peace and Sport Forum is a prestigious event that brings together international decision-makers and peace advocates under a common vision: harnessing the power of sports for the promotion of a culture of peace.
This exceptional event gathers delegates from diverse fields to explore innovative solutions, share inspiring stories, and foster meaningful collaborations aimed at promoting peace through sports.

The International Peace and Sport Forum provides a unique platform for passionate advocates, sports professionals, and all those who believe in the unifying potential of sports.

For the past 15 years, the Peace and Sport Forum has welcomed delegates and speakers from over 90 countries, including Heads of State, presidents of international sports institutions, renowned athletes, Nobel Peace Prize laureates, and change-makers.

With an aspiration to expand its impact globally, the Peace and Sport International Forum is moving beyond its traditional borders. By embracing diverse regions and cultures, it seeks to create a harmonious platform where the principles of peace and collaboration are defended through the universal language of sports.

Every corner of the globe holds the potential to contribute to a more peaceful and interconnected world!
In its neutrality, fairness, and universality, sport represents a powerful catalyst for building a culture of peace and collective well-being through dialogue. Since its creation in 2007, Peace and Sport has been advocating worldwide for the unique power of sport to foster social bonds, empower youth, and cultivate peaceful coexistence among communities. This belief is central to the role sport plays in achieving the Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 goals.

Indeed, sport has played a significant role in driving change in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, fostering a thriving, inclusive, dynamic, and vibrant society. In addition to hosting prestigious sport events and developing high-level athletes, the Kingdom's goal has been to promote community sports and create a healthy, active nation. With almost 70% of its population under the age of 35, sport can cultivate a widespread sense of belonging, inspiring future generations in the long run.
Under the theme "Sport is an answer for peace", the Peace and Sport Middle-East Forum, powered by the Saudi Olympic and Paralympic Committee (SOPC), will bring together international experts and local decision-makers from diverse backgrounds to demonstrate and define policies to deploy sport for transmitting positive values, attitudes and behaviours. The Peace and Sport Middle-East Forum 2023 in Riyadh will provide an exceptional platform for dialogue on peace through sport and for the strengthening and expansion of sustainable grassroots programs.

As a symbolic location in the heart of the Saudi capital, the Diplomatic Quarter embodies Saudi Arabia's commitment to international cooperation. The embassies, consulates and international institutions present in the quarter testify to its diplomatic importance. Holding the Peace and Sport Forum in this prestigious setting reinforces the idea that sport plays a fundamental role in promoting peace and mutual understanding between nations.
