The UWG are more than just an event: the United World Games are one of the leading events and are a fixed component in our annual calendar of events. The UWG convey socially indispensable values such as tolerance, solidarity, respect, friendship and fun movement and sport - values with which we as the province of sport also clearly identify and which we want to bring to the fore every day.”
