Speaker:

Adolf Ogi, former president of Switzerland and UN Special Advisor on Sport for Development and Peace

Topic:

Achieving the Goals of the United Nations through Sport

The Vancouver 2010 Winter Games are an extraordinary opportunity to promote peace and tolerance through the power and influence of sport. Adolf Ogi is widely recognised as a champion for peaceful participation and the right of all children to play.

As Special Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General on Sport for Development and Peace, Adolf Ogi will give an insight into the role that sport can play to improve health and education, create employment opportunities and promote tolerance and mutual understanding. He will speak to the opportunity that Canada has through the 2010 Winter Games to promote these powerful ideals. Sport and physical education are no longer considered by the international community as luxuries, but rather as essential tools to foster development and peace.

Hosted by Vancouver 2010, this address will provide attendees with an insider’s perspective on the work of the UN in this area, the Olympic Truce and the opportunity we have to promote peace by hosting the 2010 Winter Games.

can't wait to see Harper booted out of office.

at this point, he is no better than his predecessors.

At least your province doesn't have a political dynasty of Tories running your provincial government. This week, my province is having a PC leadership vote this week to determine who, among the EIGHT nominees, will replace "King Ralph" in becoming the Tory leader AND premier of Alberta. All eight of them have their own questionable political histories that I have trouble with. They range from fiscal mismanagement to their "darker sides of their personal beliefs."

thank you so much for giving birth to our current Prime Minister.
