Georgia is nominated for Peace and Sport Awards 2019 in the category “The Best Initiative of the Year.”
Created in 2008, the annual Peace and Sport Awards celebrate organizations and individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to peace, dialogue and social stability in the world through sport.
From specific field programs to global initiatives, the winners have led projects that are symbolic of sport’s capacity to reconcile divided or opposed communities.
“This year, we received an unprecedented number of applications for the Peace and Sport Awards, showing increasing involvement in the peace-through-sport movement,” said Joël Bouzou, President and Founder of Peace and Sport. “Winning this award goes way beyond winning a trophy. Winners are an inspiration to other stakeholders for what sport can achieve on the global stage.”
The 2019 Peace and Sport Awards Ceremony will be held on December 12 in Monaco as part of the Peace and Sport International Forum, under the patronage and in the presence of Prince Albert II of Monaco.
