Fair Play Football organized in the frame of the European Sustainability Week
On 3rd June 2015 took place the First Fair Play Football match at the Zrinyi Miklós Primary School in Nagykanizsa, organised by IMRO-DDKK Nonprofit Ltd. in close collaboration with Káan Károly Association for Environmental Protection and Nagykanizsa Municipality under the European Sustainability Week initiative.
The football game took place without respecting fair play rules and with unfair decisions on the judge’s side. This fact led to unequal winning opportunities between the two competing teams. The event also aimed at drawing citizen’s attention to environmentally important issues such as resource savings, sustainable forest management and the reduction of our carbon footprint.
According to Róbert Musits, CEO of IMRO-DDKK Nonprofit Ltd. “the aim of this football match was to stress the consequences of over-consumption on one hand, and on the other, to raise general awareness on the main discrepancies between needs and opportunities of inhabitants of the Northern and Southern parts of the globe. In other words, while for us it is obvious to open the water tap and to drink running water, people living in other parts of the world are without drinking water during several days due to the generalised lack of safe water.”
