Rani Vanouska T. Modely - Football to Candidate at UNESCO Heritage as a Peace symbol
Especially in this exceptional time, where football needs to bring forward its ethical values, Rani Vanouska Modely aims to bring together the 185 member states in a historic application to UNESCO for the next FIFA World Cup.
According to Rani Vanouska Modely (http://www.ranivanouskamodely.com)
The world's systems are crumbling under economic crises, the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, human rights problems, and so on. With this in mind, the candidacy seeks to encourage the signatory states of UNESCO and the world of football to adopt policies to support and finance social, educational, and charitable initiatives. Like Nelson Mandela said, "Football can change the world."
Several football establishments have already shown support for Rani Vanouska Modely and her football candidacy bid. "We are conscious of the enormous power of the most popular sport in the world, of its capacity to act as a vehicle for universal values such as fair-play and respect and of its efficiency in the strive for social improvement that is the equality between men and women, social inclusion, tolerance, and education. We hope that Football will be saved in the Intangible Cultural Heritage list of UNESCO" - Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).
"Football is much more than the most popular sport, it is a universal common language shared by 4.5 billion people on the planet. It, therefore, has its full place in the service of the objectives of the United Nations: education, culture, social inclusion, equality, environment in the service of PEACE." Rani Vanouska Modely added.
Together with modern-day heroes like Messi, Beckham, Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann, Arsène Wenger, Cristiano Ronaldo, FIFA, the African Union, and all football lovers from all nations of the world, she wants to make this appeal a symbol of humanism — "Stronger Together".
