INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON SPORT FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT
International Congress on Sport for Peace and Development, organized by UNESCO in collaboration with the Jamaican Government, was held in Kingston, Jamaica from 13-16 September 2008.
It featured two round tables on the social, economic, educational, cultural, environmental and political dimensions of sport. Presentations were made by Dr Omar Davies and the Hon. Olivia Grange as well as CARICOM Ministers of Sports, Jamaican Sports Personalities, CIGEPS members, international experts and specialists in the field.
The Congress presented an excellent opportunity to develop a comprehensive framework for Member States of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to integrate sport into their policies and programmes across a range of sectors and to debate the gaps in current sport policy. It reaffirmed that physical education is an essential component of quality education as it contributes to both the mental and physical development of children and that the link between sports and culture should be developed through a greater synergy between the different competent Ministries.
In addition, the former Prime Minister of Jamaica, Edward Seaga, invited UNESCO to organize meetings with partners who would be liable to participate in the creation of an international fund for peace and development.
