Friendship through Sport

Founded in 1948 in post-war France, the International Military Sports Council (CISM) is one of the largest multidisciplinary organizations in the world. With 140 member countries, CISM plays an important role in training elite athletes organizing over 300 days of sport around the world each year. Soldiers, who may previously have met on the battlefield, now meet in friendship on the sports playing field. Working together with organizations like the United Nations, International Olympic Committee, UNICEF, and many others, they have developed educational initiatives using sport as a foundational tool to promote peace.
