The 3rd International Forum on Sport for Peace and Development is scheduled from 5 to 6 June 2013 at the United Nations (UN) headquarters in New York, USA. Focusing on the theme “Creating a Common Vision” the UN invites high-level stakeholders from governments, the sporting community, the UN system, the academic and business worlds, civil society groups and the media to discuss the impact of sport on achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as well as how to enhance the mainstreaming of sport in development policies and strategies.

The forum is jointly organised by the UN Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), with the support of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC).
