The "values of sport" – particularly football – are a powerful force for helping promote the UN-led Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
That's the passionate view of Stefano Capellini, who is manager of the Inter Campus project, a global outreach programme run by the legendary Italian football club, Internazionale Milano.
Some players and staff were present on Thursday for a panel discussion at UN Headquarters entitled: The Power of Football to Change the World, Fostering the Sustainable Development Goals."
