The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) is an annual celebration of the power of sport to drive social change, community development and to foster peace and understanding.

The General Assembly of the United Nations decided to proclaim 6 April as International Day of Sport for Development and Peace as the date commemorates the inauguration, in 1896, of the first Olympic Games of the modern era, in Athens.
