Sporting groups and organisations from around the world are coming together for World Peace School Sports Day that will take place on September 21st.
This is being done to coincide with the United Nations World Peace Day.
This will be an opportunity for children and young adults From Sydney to Seattle to show their support for peace by taking part in sports or e-sports via schools/youth groups and clubs.
Young people are invited to get involved by posting their sports on social media using the hashtags #PeaceIsThePrize #worldpeaceSSD or #NeverAgain
Already this has gained momentum and is supported by the organisers of the Rugby League World Cup and by Newcastle United FC among others.
They also have ambassadors such as athletics legends Paula Radcliffe and Steve Cram.
John Mulligan has been speaking to the CEO of World Peace Sports Day Mike Molloy and to Communications Director Bernard Sparkes.
