Sport and Dialogue Against Violence and Discrimination project aims to tackle the problem of violence, discrimination, bullying in and around sporting events, among athletes, sport teams and their supporters. We aim to counter violent behavior through open dialogue, inclusion, tolerance and fair play in sport. The project wants to contribute to the use of sports as a diplomatic tool, one that unites nations and people, regardless of their background, ethnicity or gender. As we have recently seen in the Winter Olympics in Pyeong Chang 2018, North and South Korea marched under the same flag, putting aside their long term/widely known political conflicts. International sporting events have the capacity to unite people from around the world and promote positive attitudes, tolerance, inclusion, friendship and cooperation among nations. They are a reflection of how different ethnicities can compete under the same flag and how cultural diversity plays a more and more important role in each country, in all sports. Fostering the inclusion of disadvantaged people and promoting equal rights and gender balance in sports is a great way to advertise sport and attract a broader public and make them want to engage in physical activities. Finding positive role models among athletes is especially important for children and young people, who look up to them. That is why it is important that people involved in sports come from various backgrounds, ethnic groups, that all sports involve both male and female competitors and that they send the right messages to the public; promote a healthy lifestyle and the development of grassroots sports and events for everyone.
