Federico Mayor Zaragoza
The Paloma de Plata Award of our association was given to Federico Mayor Zaragoza, due to his tireless work in favour of a Culture of Peace, his defence of Human Rights and his friendship and support to Escuela Cultura de Paz.
Mr. Federico Mayor Zaragoza could not be there at the time of the act for personal reasons, but he wanted to send us the following message for all attendees.
On April 16 we celebrated the XV Seminar of the Escuela Cultura de Paz: Education in the Values of Volunteering, Sports and Music.
Pablo de Olavide University was again the chosen place for the celebration of the event.
More than 1,200 young people from different High schools of Seville, Málaga, Cádiz, Granada and Jaén, and students of Pablo de Olavide University participated in the forums given by people who stand out for their values of Peace, Solidarity, Respect, Democracy and Freedom.
In the ceremony held in the assembly hall of the university, our association’s Paloma de Plata Award was granted to Sor Lucía Caram, the singers Niña Pastori and Merche, Mr. Federico Mayor Zaragoza -president of Fundación Cultura de Paz and former general manager of UNESCO-, the former footballer Emilio Butragueño and the Real Federación Andaluza de Fútbol in the year of its centenary.
We were accompanied by the singers Andy and Lucas, authors of the hymn of the association ‘’Dame la esperanza.’’
We want to say thank you to the speakers, footballers, singers, artists, teachers and young people who shared the day with us, because they are the culmination of the huge amount of work developed during the course.
