On the 21-23 September, Special Olympics Italy celebrated Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day by hosting its annual meeting for all Special Olympics directors, technical coordinators and some regional representatives across Italy. A total of 80 people attended. The main topic for discussion was Special Olympics Italy’s strategic plan for the next four years as well as an introduction to our new brand identity guidelines and a special ceremony to commemorate our beloved founded Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
Special Olympics is also busy preparing to host the SOEE Football Conference in collaboration with UEFA which will take place in Rome from October 5 – 7. The conference will bring together football coordinators from across the Europe/Eurasia region working together to expand more opportunities for athletes to participate and transform their lives through football.
Long-time football partners UEFA will also attend and speak at the conference and participants will also enjoy contributions from members of the Italian Football Federation and the Turkish Football Federation. Visit here for more information on our football programme at Special Olympics.
