I can assure you that this is something much more important.” We believe that sport is one of the most important thing in youngsters life. It could be not only method to spend time but also tool for changing their life. Sport is part of both intangible heritage and daily life, and it is a symbol of the cultural diversity, richness of our societies. Sports is also efficient mean to convey values of solidarity, diversity, inclusiveness and cultural awareness. Moreover, sport reflects on different values and create a bridge between different social groups and better mutual comprehension and dialogue.
