Physical activity, play and sport are important educational tools. Indeed, at the 63rd General Assembly of the United Nations in 2008 a resolution was adopted to encourage the use of sport as a tool for fostering education, health, development and peace. The objectives of the Millennium themselves highlight the role of sport in the eradication of extreme poverty.

Fostering the full development of the individual and healthy lifestyles, as well as kitting out public spaces for sport, are some of the objectives of educating cities.
