Have you ever wonder how #UniversitySport can promote peace, inclusion and unity? University sport is central to such measures: it nurtures a love for sport, gives it structure and allows champions to flourish, while passing on the values of an open mind, fair play, solidarity and excellence, which benefit society as a whole. 20 September is International Day of University Sport! Check @UNESCO Twitter and/or Facebook accounts to learn more. #Sport #University #Peace #Development #UNESCO#SDGs #Mandela
