Ethics and Sports
SSD LUISS is patronised by the MECS, which boosts sports core values of integrity, fairness, friendship, open-mindedness, respect for peers and rivals and observance of rules. In the eyes of SSD LUISS and MECS, sports hold an educational and social function of great importance, which has to be preserved and encouraged.
Moreover, LUISS is official partner of the project “I Semi dell’Etica” (The Seeds of Ethics), which aims at teaching secondary and high school students the sound principles of loyalty, honesty and fair play. The project was launched on October 7th, 2014 in the KIP Pavillion – International School of Milan EXPO Fair – in front of an audience of 350 students of the following secondary schools – Lagrange, Schiaparelli – Gramsci, Cardano, Tito Livio, Falcone – Righi.
The final stage of the project, that was held in CPO Acqua Acetosa between May 21st and 22nd, 2015, hosted a soccer tournament between 22 participating schools chosen by the 22 soccer teams of the Lega Nazionale Professionisti Serie B (the 2nd National League), for a total amount of 127 classes involved and about 2.500 students from all over Italy.
