If sports have the power to change the world, as Nelson Mandela strongly believed, then football, the most popular of all sports, can play a determinant role to that.
In the discussion "Sports: Child and Football", distinguished scientists from the fields of Medicine, Sports, Psychology and Sociology will elaborate on the importance of football in the development of children, emphasizing the significance of participation, respect for pluralism in sports and fair play. Meanwhile, acclaimed athletes, through their experience and example will present sides of the sport that call for attention, for the parents as well as for the children.
