The international SAMBO is a strong community and FIAS as an organisation, owner of the International SAMBO events and leader of the SAMBO development, is continuously committing to do positive changes, implement best practices and inspire its stakeholders to make together a better world. One of the main steps towards achieving this objective was the commitment of the International SAMBO Federation to sustainability and the implementation of the SDGs, and cooperation with UNAOC is an excellent opportunity and challenge, once again confirming our words with actions.
Following the example of the GAISF and several International Sports Federations (IFs), FIAS proudly joins the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) Campaign for One Humanity, which calls for solidarity, compassion and unity in the face of discrimination and division. Through the “One Humanity” campaign in particular, sport, together with the Alliance, will promote diversity as an advantage rather than a threat.
UNAOC aims to bridge divides, and promote harmony among the nations, all with a view toward preventing conflict and promoting social cohesion and recognizes the ability of sport to fulfill its call to promote diversity and positive social change. With “One Humanity” campaign, UNAOC continues to promote and raise the solidarity in a time of crisis, in the face of COVID-19, unity for mutual respect, compassion and responsibility to make a real effort to continue working of achievement of following SDG’s: No poverty (1), Zero Hunger (2), Reduced Inequalities (10), Good Health and Well-being (3) Pease, Justice and Strong Institutions (16), Partnership for the Goals (17) as well as it concerns other issues.
Through the One Humanity Campaign, FIAS will also demonstrate its commitment to a peaceful and inclusive society through a series of initiatives, video campaigns and the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) for further effective and beneficial cooperation.
