Prime Minister Conte meets with the young people from Rondine Cittadella della Pace
19 Febbraio 2019
This morning, at Palazzo Chigi, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte met with a delegation from the Rondine Cittadella della Pace Association, led by its President and Founder Franco Vaccari. The goal of the Rondine association is to train young people to take an approach that rejects war and is open to dialogue. During the meeting, the young people from World House - the international student residence that gives young men and women from countries marred by ongoing or recent conflicts an opportunity to live their daily lives together - presented the “Leaders for Peace” campaign, devised to mark the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights. The Prime Minister supported the appeal made by the Rondine Association and signed a moral commitment to allocate a symbolic amount to fund a scholarship to be transferred from the Defence budget.
