Peace and Sport

Every year on April 6 the Olympic Movement celebrates the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, an annual acknowledgment of the power of sport to drive social change, foster community development, and promote peace.

Climbers for Peace

To celebrate the eighth edition of April6, in March 2021 the IFSC  launched its 'Climbers for Peace' initiative.

After successfully engaging with the climbing community over the past few years, the IFSC decided to go for something bigger and better in 2021, teaming up with Peace and Sport to launch and promote a crowdfunding campaign in support of the organisation’s development projects.

Climbers from all over the world are invited to take part in the challenge: to perform as many one-armed pull-ups as possible while holding a white card, the symbol for Peace and Sport, in their free hand. They are then encouranged to post their photos and videos on social media and promote the fundraising drive.

Challenge submissions will be shared on Facebook, Instagram Stories, and Twitter using the hashtags #ClimbersForPeace and #WhiteCard.

Crowdfunding for the campaign will be open here until April 6, with the amount raised announced on this date.
