An exclusive funders meeting on creative philanthropic approaches for peace alliances through sports

The field of shared society is supported by many JFN members. The goal of this meeting is to meet like-minded funders and present a new assessment of Peace and Sports Alliance, followed by a roundtable discussion to share experiences and various perspectives. Our hope is to explore the opportunity to create an interest group in this area.

Sport have the unique ability to connect, empower and mobilize diverse communities. The universal language of sport promotes people-to-people encounters that are essential for breaking down barriers of hate and building bridges of hope in our region. These encounters help to equip the next generation with the skills and values needed to lead social change in their communities.

History has shown how sport can serve as a catalyst for bringing former enemies together and the global Sports for Peace Community has developed into a powerful movement for social change with a rich network of stakeholders.

Israel needs to use this platform to create a more tolerant shared society and to develop closer ties in the region.
