09:00 - 09:15 Welcome Words

Welcome to the 7th edition of the Smart Cities & Sport Summit to be held for the first time ever exclusively online.

09:15 - 10:00 Partnerships for the Goals: How can cities, international sports federations and international organisations work together to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

This kick-off session will aim to briefly introduce the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN Agenda 2030. It will also launch a discussion on the potential for sport and its stakeholders (mainly cities and international federations) to contribute to the successful achievement of these Goals. Finally, the development of solid and inventive partnerships will be addressed, as they will be key to the success of this ambition.

10:00 - 11:00 Peace and Sport: How to shape better cities through sport?

The role of sport in peace-building is one of the most highly debated areas in sport and development, as many limit its contributions to the post-conflict phase. However, the scope of action can be much broader, as sport has proven to be a genuine tool for social integration regardless of a country’s political stability.
How can cities build a better and more peaceful environment for their citizens through sport?
