The “Sport, Spirit of Humanity” Declaration is the fruit of two exceptional encounters between the entirety of Belgium’s recognized religions, secular society and the Belgian sport movement,
first in October 2016 at the Parliament of the Federation Wallonia-Brussels, and then in March 2017 at the Belgian Senate.
“Whereas each person engaging in sport possesses their own rich values and philosophies of life or of belonging, he/she accepts that once they cross the threshold or enter the sporting arena,
they will agree, with no exceptions, to adopt and conform to the rules of sport in the widest sense, without promoting their philosophical convictions in an ostentatious or intolerant fashion, in
any way whatsoever”.
