Why is sport such a powerful medium for development and peace?
Sport brings people together regardless of their backgrounds. By exercising together, people learn to work as a team, to respect differences and to value diversity. This is how sport fosters mutual understanding and builds bridges between people and communities.
Sport provides positive values such as respect, tolerance, fairness, honesty and solidarity. Physical exercise also fosters discipline, perseverance and teamwork, skills that are important both in training and in everyday life.
Sport, especially when it is particularly motivating and fun, plays a very important role in promoting health and well-being in society. That's why it is key to promote access to sports facilities and equipment. (See Aerower's Gyms Plan).

Finally, something very relevant in the current context. Team exercise promotes peace and conflict resolution. Through sport, people learn to work together to achieve a common goal, which promotes cooperation and reconciliation in conflict situations.
Today is a day to talk about how much we love exercising, in our case, exercising with jumpers. Tell your acquaintances why it is so important in our society. Today we are happy because in every #Jumple class we experience companionship, we grow in health and respect, we experience cooperation and we improve the quality of our own lives together.
Happy International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, athlete.
