On Monday, April 23, HE Isabelle Picco, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Monaco to the United Nations, addressed the Security Council during the debate on youth, peace and security. She championed the universal language of sport in the context of participation, protection, prevention and partnerships.

The Ambassador spoke of the work done by the organisation Peace and Sport, which since 2007 has supported programmes on five continents and benefits from a network of “champions for peace”.

She also welcomed the publication of the Simpson study, a striking insight into the long road that remains to be travelled in order to mobilise the tremendous wealth of the young, often victims of armed conflicts, who themselves are largely absent from peace and conflict resolution processes.
