IFFD in the General Assembly of the United Nations

IFFD took part in different events held in New York as part of the 72nd period of sessions of the General Assembly of the United Nations, which was inaugurated on September 12th. Our presence in this cycle of sessions allows us to transmit to relevant people in the different organisms the main concerns of the families we train around the world. In this document, shared with the government delegations during the opening of the General Assembly, we gathered the main messages from the six events which we’ve organized this year, based around the Objective of Sustainable Development number 4, regarding education.

The design of the program combines training and holidays, and the participating families were able to enjoy outdoor activities in the mountains of the Spanish Pyrenees (Huesca).
