PCU Committee | Fair Play Initiatives 2021 | Invitations
In cooperation with the PCU Committee (the university platform of Panathlon International, Fair Play organization recognized by the International Olympic Committee), the University of Antwerp (Belgium) is involved in the organization of a lot of international Sports- and Art-related events. The main objective is to offer students a platform where sport is considered as a valuable instrument to develop international interaction and experience, with emphasis on the International Olympic Committee recognized Panathlon values of Fair Play and International Friendship.
