With the overall aspiration to bring people and the planet closer together and leave no one behind, the 2030 Agenda is a unique opportunity to inspire global action for development around the world, including in the field of sport for development and peace.
The Barcelona Olympic Foundation joins the global vision of sport as a tool for education in sustainability and social inclusion.
Sport has proven to be a cost-effective and flexible tool for promoting peace and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
One of the hallmarks of the Fundació Barcelona Olímpica is sustainability. The institution has been betting on it since 2015 and applying it both in actions within the facilities it manages —Centre d’Estudis and Museu Olímpic i de l’Esport Joan Antoni Samaranch— and in the activities and educational offer that it offers to different audiences.
Sport is a facilitator of sustainable development. It increasingly contributes to realizing development and peace by promoting tolerance and respect, and also supports the empowerment of women and youth, individuals and communities, as well as health, education and inclusion goals Social.
