Inter Campus back at the United Nations
Inter Campus— Apr 7th 2023
The Nerazzurri social program once again at the UN headquarters in New York to talk about sport, development and peace
On the occasion of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace organised by the Department of Global Communications (DGC) in collaboration with the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), Inter Campus was once again the host and leader of the day dedicated to the role of sport as a means to tackle climate change, promote gender equality and combat racial discrimination.
A day that saw important personalities from the world of sport and beyond discuss these issues at the United Nations headquarters in New York, as they have done in the past. Our Vice President and Inter Campus Ambassador Javier Zanetti and Silvio Guareschi, Psychologist and Technical Manager of Inter Campus brought the experience of the Nerazzurri's social project, which this year celebrates twenty-five years of activity, all over the world in favour of thousands of children.
Over thirty children from the project in the United States, all from the Joseph Pulitzer school in Queens where Inter Campus works to promote ethnic integration, were able - wearing strictly black and blue shirts - to attend the day, meet Zanetti and visit the Glass Palace. For them, it was an emotional and unforgettable moment.
Finally, our delegation was engaged in some important institutional meetings: the one with Ambassador Maurizio Massari of the Italian Permanent Representation to the United Nations and the one with Fabrizio Di Michele, Consul General of Italy in New York, to strengthen and consolidate our common commitment. Commitment that Inter Campus deploys every day to protect the rights of thousands of children.
