Speech - Dep Min Oosthuizen - Inter-governmental Committee for Education and Sport, UNESCO - 6 June 2011

As a specialized agency of the UN system, UNESCO has an important role to play in capitalizing on the value of sport and physical education in contributing to the building of peace, the alleviation of poverty, sustainable development and inter-cultural dialogue. We are all cognizant of the fact that the Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport was established in 1978 explicitly to promote the role and value of sport and its inclusion in public policy. Today however, I am hesitant to stand before you and claim that we have maximized the power of sport.
