UNICEF Ambassador Ana Ivanovic promotes Olympic values in school violence prevention

UNICEF National Ambassador for Serbia Ana Ivanovic met up with pupils from Belgrade primary and secondary schools for the “School without Violence” programme yesterday.

During the event, Ivanovic talked to the children about the importance of nurturing Olympic values and spirit in sport and in life alike, respect for others and friendship.

“Sport and the values that characterise it are important for children and young people in developing self-esteem, commitment to teamwork, problem-solving, respect each other and nurturing friendships. Adopting these fundamental values can also help decrease violence and bullying in schools and create a better and more enabling environment for children and youth,” Ivanovic said.
