Learning fair play behaviour in sport can lead to the development and reinforcement of fair play behaviour in the community and in life. C. RESPECT FOR OTHERS When young people who live in a multicultural world learn to accept and respect diversity, and practise personal peaceful behaviour, they promote peace and international understanding.
