“Proving the impact of Sport for Development programs: Peace and Sport’s approach” – Marlene Harnois

This year we celebrate the International Day of Peace with a remarkable guest. 

Marlene Harnois shares her journey from Olympic medallist to the Champions-for-Peace club representative. She introduces us to the experience of Peace and Sport as an international organization dedicated to promoting sport as a tool for development and Peace. 

She insists on the growing necessity to prove the impact of sport on development and Peace, the reason why she introduces us to the first digital tool using sport to build a culture of Peace. 

She always dreamed of being an Olympic medallist, and once she was on the podium at London 2012, she knew she wanted to give back to society, and use all that experience to inspire young generations, promote positive values through sports and work for a better world. 

All of this encouraged her to join Peace and Sport as she shares the same values and vision. The organization had developed and implemented numerous programs in 5 countries through seminars, activities, partnerships, and gathering 118 international athletes as ambassadors for champions for Peace. They also developed an App recognized by the UN’s report on the 2030 agenda to bring Peace through sports to the digital sphere.

How is Peace and Sport developing these actions around the world? How do they measure the impact of their performances? Do you want to know more about the App?

Having well-defined objectives and knowing how to measure them is a prerequisite for further progress. So, if you’re keen to learn how to implement concrete actions to contribute to build a culture of Peace, we invite you to watch the replay of Marlene Harnois’ TALK: “Proving the impact of Sport for Development programs: Peace and Sport’s approach.”
