Dear Reader,                                                                                         18 January 2017

Welcome to Issue 182 of the newsletter!

The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is now just around the corner. If you haven’t already started planning what you are doing for 6 April, now is a good time to start. In this newsletter we feature a preview of IDSDP 2017 to kick off this year's coverage. 

Do corporations have a responsibility to look beyond their communities and behave as good citizens globally? That’s the question asked in the second of our series on sport and CSR.

Elsewhere in the newsletter, we feature the story of two of Australia’s biggest rugby sevens stars, who joined ChildFund to coach in Vietnam, as well as a project using football to tackle social problems in Cape Town and research highlighting the social value of boxing.  Finally, be sure to check out this week’s article in French, highlighting the news that the Swiss sporting community has ethical values in sport as a priority for 2017.

Enjoy your reading,
