2016 - 3RD CAPE TOWN INTERNATIONAL PEACE CONFERENCE AND EXPO Theme: The Power of a Dream 16 September 2016

Once again we have experienced the power of sport as a tool for peace building and peace keeping. At the 2016 Summer Olympics that took place in Rio de Janeiro from 05 to 21 August 2016, billions of people witnessed how sport was the unifying factor amongst people from all over the world with so many new friendships built between people from different backgrounds, cultures and religions. I dare say that building a peaceful and better world through sport is the Olympic ideal!
