  • Published in Sport

UNESCO granted the patronage to VI "Children of Asia" International Sports Games. This was reported in an official letter, which was received at the headquarters of the Russian representation of the UNESCO Moscow Office.

UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova:

- This event is really a model to create a positive experience from an early age and significant to maintain physical activity throughout life. In addition to its important role in promoting healthy lifestyle, "Children of Asia" Games also contribute significantly to the use of sport as a means for intercultural dialogue and understanding, especially among young people.

For the first time UNESCO patronage was granted to V "Children of Asia» International Sports Games in 2012.  Patronage gives the right to carry out activities under the auspices of this organization, raises their status in the international arena and is proof that the mission of UNESCO and the project, which was awarded the patronage, match.
