One of the aims of Barrie Oxtoby, Co-Chair of UNA Central Region, is to use sport to promote peace and sustainable development, an objective which he feels has huge potential.

Sport could unite nations. Encouragement for this concept emerged in a powerful way during UNA UK’s National Conference in 2012. Honey Thaljieh, founder of Palestinian Women’s Football Team which played on the West Bank, explained how sport could unite hostile territories. Other speakers referred to the Olympic Legacy and its potential.

UNA Central will post information about this concept on this website.
