history of the holiday
Thinking about the health of children and adults, the UN General Assembly on August 23, 2013 decided to add one more holiday to the list of significant dates. In the document that reflected the decision, this day was called as follows: International Sports Day for Development and Peace. The history of the origin of this holiday dates back to the distant 1952. Then, at the insistence of UNESCO, it was decided to advertise and popularize sports. At the same time, the sense of introducing sports into schools, kindergartens and adult institutions was that people increase their level of education, develop mentally and physically.
The semantic message of the holiday
The UNESCO program includes the idea of the importance of this holiday. The UN meeting once again noted: "People need development." If a child grows in a poor family, a small town or a poor country, at the expense of his sporting efforts, he can visit many cities or even countries. All this contributes to its diversified development. In addition, sports develops the inner qualities of the individual, such as discipline, commitment, motivation for success, responsibility, diligence, energy and so on.
