Signed over the weekend during a special reception organised in celebration of the United Nations Universal Children’s Day at The Westin Doha, the signing of the Global Pact will see The Westin Doha support Save the Dream  by promoting Save the Dream’s projects and disseminating information to promote and protect sport values within its clients and partners.

The Save the Dream Global Pact for Sport is a voluntary network of supporters from the business sector committed to promoting the positive values of sport and Save the Dream’s mission within their wider networks and amongst their respective employees.

Gianrico Esposito, General Manager of The Westin Hotel, said:

On behalf of The Westin Doha, we are delighted to support Save the Dream and sign up to the Global Pact for Sport. The Westin Hotel shares the objectives of Save the Dream, including that of making sport more accessible to people, particularly children, regardless their social and physical circumstance.’

‘The organisation of this reception in celebration of the United Nations Universal Children’s Day is a first demonstration of our willingness to advocate, jointly with Save the Dream, on the rights of children, including their right to play, practice sport and learn from its values.’

Massimiliano Montanari, Save the Dream Executive Director, said:

On behalf of Save the Dream, I would like to thank The Westin Doha for its support and signing up to the Save the Dream Global Pact for Sport.’

‘Save the Dream strongly believes in the importance of the tourism industry in the dissemination of information on the importance of sport for youth, as well as on the protection of children from possible threats happening in the context of sport.’

Montanari concluded:

It is important that the business community plays an educational role, providing their employees with educational tools, including those that harness the power of sport, for themselves and for their respective children.’

The Save the Dream Global Pact for Sport envisages a Declaration signed by businesses in Qatar and around the world to show their support and organise sport-related activities and projects for employees, customers and other stakeholders under the banner of Save the Dream and through their CSR programmes.
