Desporto

A atividade física, os jogos e o desporto são importantes instrumentos educativos. Neste sentido, na 63ª sessão da Assembleia Geral da ONU, celebrada em 2008, foi aprovada uma resolução que incentiva o uso do desporto como instrumento para a promoção da educação, da saúde, do desenvolvimento e da paz. Os próprios Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milénio destacam o papel do desporto na erradicação da pobreza extrema.

Promover o desenvolvimento pleno das pessoas e estilos de vida saudáveis, bem como a adequação dos espaços públicos à prática do desporto, são alguns dos objetivos das cidades educadoras.

Princípios da Carta: 1, 10 e 11.
