Mr. Bertagna spoke on the importance of sport for the development of peace and unity, “We understand the power of community, the power of empowerment. Just one of the simple tag lines we use at our company is ‘Keeping you connected to whom and what matters most’. And I think sports are indicative of keeping you connected—they transcend racial divide, they bring people together—people who may not normally see eye to eye all of a sudden bond.” Mr. Bertagna continued his speech, with focus on sport being an intricately woven part of our global fiber, offering itself as a catalyst for positive change and as a platform for all to unite.
The Sport 4 Development Summit aims to raise awareness for the benefit of using sport as a catalyst for developmental change and peace around the world and the tools that the United Nations and JBF Worldwide provide to do so. The summit also aims to create opportunities, synergies and partnerships between the sports community, NGO community and participating members of the United Nations, to foster new development projects and ideas.
