Save the Dream works in official cooperation with organisations such as the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Olympic Truce Center (IOTC) as well as with a vast network of stakeholders from civil society, academia and sport.
Save the Dream mainly focuses on the following areas and methods:
Global outreach programmes are an integral part of the Save the Dream strategy and are conceived to inform and inspire sport fans and the general public through public events, art, media and technology, with the aim of mobilising communities to come together in support of Save the Dream’s goals and mission.
Save the Dream strives to empower and educate young athletes, youth leaders, young professionals and students on sport-related values, focusing on a wide range of concepts, from integrity to social inclusion, protection of human rights and peace-building. Save the Dream’s programmes prioritise young people who are in the position to spread the values of Save the Dream among their peers and communities.
Save the Dream pays strong attention to most vulnerable categories of people who could be affected by wrong-doings or criminal activities happening around the world of sport such as trafficking of minors, abuses and possible children exploitation in the context of major sporting events.
SPORT IN THE HUMANITARIAN CONTEXT
Sport is a powerful tool to empower youth particularly in contexts of extreme poverty, crisis or post-conflict situations, having a substantial impact on a child’s psychosocial wellbeing. Save the Dream works with humanitarian organizations to develop local sport for development and peace programmes, for the benefit of young Internally Displaced People (IDPs), Refugees and other most vulnerable or underprivileged groups.
