The ARISF President Raffaele Chiulli and the Council Member Anna Arzhanova were invited at the European Parliament to talk on the Universal Language of Sport.

Anna Arzhanova underlined the increasingly important role of women in sport and Raffaele Chiulli stressed the ARISF support to all sport initiatives designed to promote participation, physical activity, dual careers for athletes, good governance, integrity and social inclusion; sport provides education and guidance to young generations and can "Unite in Diversity" regardless of faith, race, culture, beliefs, gender and ability.

“Our athletes - said Raffaele Chiulli - are the main representatives of our ideals. Athletes make our values and message tangible for millions of people worldwide. ARISF through our athletes promotes the values of Olympism, a life philosophy that combines sport, education and culture. We wish to build a better world by educating youth through sport”.
