“Sport is based on the concepts of respect, understanding, integration and dialogue, and contributes to the development and fulfilment of individuals regardless of age, gender, origin, beliefs and opinions. Sport is a unique forum for action and reflection to transform our societies”.
Audrey Azoulay Unesco General Manager
Sport is a universal language that unites peoples, cultures, and genders. A powerful, direct language on which the United Nations intends to push to achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
In order to actively contribute to the achievement of some of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Rome 2022 World Masters Table Tennis Championships will be organised through the implementation of concrete and tangible actions that can generate positive impacts for the community and the environment.
Rome 2024, through the direct involvement of partners and sponsors, is organising its sustainability activities in the following strategic action areas:
- RESPONSIBLE MANAGEMENT
- COMPENSATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS
- INCLUSIVENESS AND ACCESSIBILITY
- GOVERNANCE AND TRANSPARENCY
The first goal of ITTF WMTTC Rome 2024 must be to organise a completely “paper and plastic free” event through particularly strict environment policies.
