More than a thousand students took part
Rome, May 11 (askanews) – Sport and school together again. Two complementary worlds that have led to an important project in favor of students. “Dream on Green-From the Hole to Exclusion” is the project carried out by the Liceo Artistico Ripetta together with the MSP Roma, a sports promotion organization recognized by Coni, which aimed to promote among young people, strongly affected by the pandemic. , development of correct social relationships and improvement of physical and mental condition through the practice of outdoor sports.

“Dream on Green” is part of the Social Sport MSP Italia initiative of the Sports Department of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, is sponsored by the Department of Sports, Tourism and Major Events of the Municipality of Rome and sponsored by Decathlon. A project that was made possible thanks to the commitment of high school teachers, who in recent months coordinated high school classes so that everyone could get involved in this sporting activity. The boys, from first to fifth, responded enthusiastically to the project, both discovering new sports and practicing the already known ones.
