COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of our lives including where and how we can take part in sport and physical activity. The impacts have been unequal, and some of us are finding it more difficult than others to stay active. This is widening health gaps, at a time when staying active is more important than ever for our mental and physical wellbeing.
On ocassion of the UN International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP), join us in the webinar organized by the World Health Organization on 6 April to discuss how the impacts of COVID-19 have created a need for, and opportunity to reinvent and rebuild stronger, fairer, more inclusive physical activity and sport systems for all.
