Mayor of the Municipality of
Vila Nova de Cerveira

Dear Partners,

Working and fostering social inclusion involves a permanent union of efforts. The dissemination of the event "Intergenerational Olympics" at European level through the 'In Common Sports' project recognizes that the social policy based on humanism and in the involvement of all ages, without borders or gender, is a role model for sustainable communities.

'In Common Sports' will certainly create a beneficial institutional interaction and an exceptional intergenerational exchange. The growing of committed and inclusive societies lies on this exchange of knowledge and wisdom between young and old generations As mayor of the Municipality that leads this project, I wish all the collaborators and participants all the success.

The mayor of the Municipality of Vila Nova de Cerveira
