Panathlon International is committed to the health of our seas

On Tuesday 11th December 2019, President Pierre Zappelli together with Once Ocean's Executive Vice-President and legal representative, Dr. Riccardo Bonadeo signed a Collaboration Agreement in which Panathlon commits not only to sign but to collaborate for the dissemination of the "Charta Smeralda": an ethical code that aims to raise awareness of public opinion and all operators to address the most pressing problems of the oceans and marine and coastal ecosystems and which aims to define practical and  immediate  policy areas focused on problem solving.

The "Charta Smeralda" concerns those persons who live the sea for sport and passion, the lovers of the sea and the structures promoting and supporting activity.

Panathlon International, which is an international movement with the aim of affirming the sporting ideal and its ethical and cultural values as an instrument of formation and elevation of the person, solidarity and peace between men and peoples, could not remain indifferent to this initiative.

Thus was born the idea, promoted by the Club of Mestre and the Governor of the Venetian Area, to sign an agreement to collaborate to protect our Seas and Oceans, mothers and cradles of our Planet and our life and of those sports activities carried out within them.  

A truly important initiative focused on raising awareness of the current situation and of the risks that our marine and coastal ecosystem runs, an environment on which our survival depends. Rapallo, seat of Panathlon International, but also many other cities and harbour around the world, have already had the demonstration of the violence and enormous damages that ecosystem imbalances can cause.

And we're just getting started.

Among the most significant interventions, that of Zsigmond Nagy who illustrated the perspectives arising from the relations between Fair Play, Ethics and Sports Legislation.

The award ceremony – see the full list below – featured many of the names reported by Panathlon International as a member of CIFP. 

Fabio Caramel received Pierre de Coubertin Trophy for Gesture from the hands of President Jeno Kamuti. The proposal had come from the Panathlon Club Venice. 

David Smetanine winner of the Trophy for the Career was absent because he was involved in Paralympic competitions. Marie Claire Nepi secretary of the Club of Grenoble withdrew the award for him. The French club has made also the name of Geo Perli, who has received the Diploma of Honour for his Career in the spirit of fair play.

Panathlon's satisfaction was reflected in the blue eyes of Simona Callo, Secretary General of P.I. representing President Pierre Zappelli. It was a beautiful celebration and the parade of so many champions who, with their values testify sport’s humanity, gratified the feelings that every good sportsman cultivates.
