Thanks to the support expressed by many subjects in this first phase, Rondine intends to seek new paths, also drawing on the tools of digital diplomacy, to continue promoting the appeal for global leaders to invest in a new, young peace leadership and, at the same time, to promote the teaching of human rights in their national school programs with the help and support of the Rondine Method.
“It is not automatic that humanity comes out better from this moment – says President Franco Vaccari – What we can do is give our contribution as we are doing now. At Rondine we practice concreteness, we cultivate big dreams but then we take the possible steps. The Leaders for Peace campaign is also born within this spirit “.
