Generations For Peace is the international non-governmental organisation founded by HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein of Jordan in 2007 and dedicated to the innovative and sustainable use of sport for peace building and development. It has grown rapidly and now supports delegates and certified Generations For Peace Pioneers in communities facing a variety of forms of conflict in 46 countries and territories.
526 delegates have been trained through the Generations For Peace Pioneer Certification Programme, at seven intensive 10-day camps in Amman (Jordan), Abu Dhabi (UAE) and Sochi (Russia). Cascading their learning and experience on to over 4,200 second and third generation Peace Pioneers and delegates, their Generations For Peace programmes have now touched the lives of 62,000 children.
The Generations For Peace Institute was established in 2010 as the academic research arm of Generations For Peace. Working in partnership with Georgetown University and the University of Oxford, the Institute is leading and supporting collaborative multi-disciplinary research, and then sharing the knowledge and best practice across the whole sport for peace and development community.
Generations For Peace is one of only two peace through sport organisations officially recognised by the International Olympic Committee: the other is Right To Play.
