Al Thawadi urged young people to face the challenges with stability and flexibility as leaders of transformation. "We seek to provide them with all the tools that enable them to make change in their communities, so you inspire your colleagues in all communities around the world, especially for future generations, which is undoubtedly a semantic message of the unbridled impact of sport, as well as the role it plays in improving the lives of individuals and communities."
In turn, Aliaa Bin Saif, spoke about the contributions of young people in achieving sustainable development, thereby emitting and inspiring others with hope: ”Youth ambassadors are the core of positive transformation in their communities, as well as with the main factor in inventing radical solutions for community problems ”.
The Qatari ambassador showed her hope that young people know the best ways to participate effectively in achieving the objectives of sustainable development, as well as understand the impact of football and its power in inspiring individuals.
Among others attending the training course was Isable Piscot, Permanent Delegate of the Principality of Monaco to the United Nations, John Barnes, former English soccer star, and Marco Suizo, President of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research.
