Montanari
The International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS) is committed to promoting sustainable development.

ICSS chief executive officer Massimiliano Montanari (main image) told Qatar News Agency that sustainability is a priority and that its Save the Dream initiative is committed to promote and protect core values of sport for the good of youth and the future.

"Sustainability means for us promoting long-term programmatic approaches rather than one-off projects while supporting initiatives which can continue over time through solid partnerships and the creation of self-sustainable eco-systems able to ensure proper resource mobilization," Montanari was quoted as saying.

"It means working with multipliers and promoting as much as domino effects and multisectoral actions that can benefit sport as an industry and as system of values to be protected.

"Sport teaches sustainability. There are so many lessons we can learn from sport at all levels. Most of grassroots sports succeed (not just survive) since they are grounded on both well planned or in many cases spontaneous self-sustainable mechanisms where small sponsors, volunteers, communities, municipalities, and civil society work together to provide sport to youth.

"The same way that athletes are preparing and managing competitions, the way they utilize their energy provides us with important notions," he added.

Montanari added that messages about the environment are present in all ICSS initiatives.

"We talk about it (environment) when we promote sustainability safety and security policies, when we promote ethics and integrity in sport or when we use sport and its values to empower and educate young people.

"Environment is always one of the key topics. We think about environment also in our daily activities. The items we procure, the water we drink.

"We give priority to zero-miles products, goods manufactured with recyclable materials and any other solution that can help us in delivering a better world to the future generations," he added.
