Barcelona Foundation and Unicef: An exemplary collaboration

In the context of education through sport, social inclusion must be increasingly valued in various sports, like soccer. Should prevail three maximum: teach the sport to everyone and teach the sport to everyone and teach more than sport at all. It is important to have the promotion of public policies that can ever more secure the right to sport for all, especially children and adolescents, as a constitutional guarantee provided for in Art. 5 of the Federal Constitution Federative Republic of Brazil 1988.

All persons are equal before the law. There should be equal opportunities especially to activities related to education and sport. In this context, the role of teacher / coach is essential to carry out sports activities that can develop knowledge, skills and positive attitudes of boys and girls. According to Art. 4 of the Statute of Children and Adolescents (ECA), it is the duty of the state, the family, community, society in general and the government to ensure, with absolute priority, the realization of the rights to life, health, education, sport, leisure, culture, dignity, respect, freedom and family and community life.

At this time, the main impressions, reflections and perspectives on education by sport in Brazil are excellent, especially when considering the valuable lessons University of Soccer, which will always remain in my day to day academic, professional and as a Brazilian citizen. Mostly, realizing that solidarity, love, respect and social inclusion should be ubiquitous in the games and children games and young people, to strengthen the idea of ​​sport as law and established practice of the principles of inclusive education, emphasizing the educational aspects of teaching sports, be they network and field, invasion, fighting and combat, athletics and rhythmic activities, as well present in many schools and Brazilian and international institutions.

Therefore, from the perspective of sport and education in global parameter, the practice sports should be safe and inclusive for children and young people, especially students disabled. A few years ago the Fundació F.C. Barcelona / Spain is receiving highlighting the various activities of inclusion and social responsibility. However, are developed numerous recreational activities for children and young people, especially soccer, basketball and art education through drawings and reading textbooks, in addition to the motivation through the presence of his biggest idols in the sport, such as the Latin American players Neymar Junior (Brazil) and Lionel Messi (Argentina), whose personal and professional trajectories are also inspiring.

The Fundació F.C. Barcelona is great example and should be inspiration to others national and foreign institutions in relation to the theory associated with the practice of collateral inalienable sports education by presenting different approaches and technologic innovative to provide students with a more complete experience of sports focusing not only on results, but in interpersonal relationships, to be training solidarity and conscious citizens in the current global environment.

In the national and international context the importance of education through sport is to consolidate the full human development also through culture, which must be present in lives of thousands of children and youth. Through the game, the game and the sport should be a relevant participation, through socialization and inclusion in society, which allow the physical, motor, cognitive, psychological, emotional, spiritual and social development of children, youth and adult participants of the various practices sports, cultural and leisure that comes to interfere positively in the way they perceive life and the modern world.

All this learning about the sport for education comes to ennoble my fields of multidisciplinary activities (Business, Law and Journalism). Currently, I was approved in Doctor of Law and Social Sciences Program at the National University of Cordoba (UNC / 400 Años de Tradición) and future all the knowledge acquired at the University of Soccer will serve as the maximum reference for the elaboration of my Thesis "Fundació F.C. Barcelona and UNICEF: Human Dignity, Infancia y Juventud ", which is investigating so scientific sports activities and inclusive education present in countries like Brazil, Argentina, China, Ghana and South Africa, from the perspective of human rights and Social Sciences.

In the reality of Latin America and Brazil, where there are increasingly high rates of child labor, many situations involving consumption and drug trafficking, the most various forms of violence and juvenile sexual exploitation, especially in all Regions of Brazil. The basic premise to ensure access to sports as a right and change the lives of thousands of boys and girls, will always be a level playing field in access to education and sports. According to Art. 32 of the Law of Guidelines and Bases of National Education (Law No. 9.394 / 96), you must ensure the basic training of citizens through education key required by developing the ability to learn and understand the natural and social environment, the political system, technology, art and the acquisition of knowledge and skills in shaping attitudes and human values.

Finally, I come to reflect on the meaning of a great example of Fundació F.C. Barcelona through the excellence in all activities the University of Soccer, with determination, study and research on sport and education. At this time I dedicate my sincere thanks to all creators, teachers and students of the University of Soccer, Fundació Barcelona F.C., UNICEF, United Wolfsburg and Western Union Foundation, to strengthen the ideals of sport and education in a human way, caring, committed and true, for the dignity human and integral protection of boys and girls who can make a difference and provide new opportunities for thousands of children and young people in Brazil and in several countries of the world.

Barcelona must improve dramatically to even dream of comeback vs Juventus

Barcelona host Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday (2:30 PM ET, EXCLUSIVE ONLINE STREAMING here). The Catalans, who fully deserved the 3-0 defeat in the first leg, will have to once again fight for a miraculous comeback in front of their home fans.

Luis Enrique's men must try their utmost to pile up the pressure from the initial whistle and score an early goal if they are going to have any chance of qualifying for the semifinals. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the rest of the Barcelona stars must ensure they use the whole width of the pitch and constant ball movement in order to open up spaces within the Juventus back-line.

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta seemed to be up for the challenge during his pre-match press conference: "We have the potential and the players to turn it around. We have to play a perfect game. We have to create the maximum number of chances and score goals. I have no doubt there will be a great atmosphere tomorrow—the fans will be behind us. A…

Barcelona rewriting history after 1,500 matches at glorious Camp Nou

Barcelona have now played a staggering 1,500 games of football at the Camp Nou. The stadium, which was built back in 1957 to replace the legendary Les Corts Stadium due to the demand for tickets exceeding the ground’s capacity, has witnessed 1,119 Barca wins, 238 draws and only 143 defeats over the years.

Barca are clearly not invincible at the Camp Nou but their winning records of 75% and being unbeaten in 90% of home games speaks for themselves.

Barcelona have now become a global phenomenon thanks to not only their dominance, but also the many world-class stars that have been part of their squad over the years. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar take the vast majority of the spotlight these days, but their success can only be understood as a continuation of the work of legends such as Johan Cruyff, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Hristo Stoichkov or Lazlo Kubala over the years.

Camp Nou is a synonym of sporting excellence these days. The recent successes under the leadership of Luis Enrique…

Barcelona right to appeal Neymar controversial ban ahead of El Clasico

Neymar's decision to applaud the referee after being sent off during Barcelona's defeat in Malaga on Sunday was not very clever. His childish reaction after being shown a controversial red card gave the Spanish officials a golden opportunity to ban him for the Catalans' next three matches -- including the upcoming Clasico against Real Madrid.

As it was to be expected, the Barcelona board have wasted no time in starting the process to appeal Neymar's disproportionate ban. It is believed the Camp Nou giants will until Friday 21st April, two days before El Clasico, to file their appeal at the TAD Committee. That way, it is more than likely that the officials will run out of time to make a decision and be forced to postpone the case a further week -- meaning that Neymar would be able to suit up against Real Madrid after all.

Sure, Neymar's behaviour was out of order. Having said that, it is hardly surprising that the Spanish officials banned him for just enough matche…

Neymar must stay to secure Barcelona long-term success

Neymar has been excellent for Barcelona since he joined the Catalan giants back in the summer of 2013. Despite the many question marks over whether he would accept to share the spotlight with Lionel Messi, his professionalism off the pitch and even the legality of his transfer, the Brazilian youngster has made a remarkable impact and deservedly become a Camp Nou favourite.

As our partners as Sbobet Mobile know, Barcelona are not currently leading the La Liga table but nobody in their right mind would rule them out of retaining the title. If the Blaugranas are to leapfrog Real Madrid before the end of the season and win the league for the third consecutive season, Neymar has a huge role to play in the nine games remaining.

Fortunately for Cules, Neymar is currently playing the best football of his whole career. Fully established at both club and international level, the No.11's confidence and excellent form makes him a constant danger that rivals constantly struggle to contain -- …

Neymar, Messi, Ter Stegen lift Barcelona to greatest comeback in Champions League history

Sergi Roberto’s last gasp winner against Paris Saint Germain became an instantly legendary moment that Barcelona fans will cherish forever. Although the Camp Nou faithful are aware that qualifying for the Champions League quarterfinals is not a huge achievement in itself, the players’ determination to complete the biggest ever comeback in the biggest club competition in world football was impressive.

While it came down to Sergi Roberto to seal the historic win, the La Masia graduate was certainly not the only player to excel in Barcelona’s most important game of the season.

Neymar was, without a shadow of a doubt, the leader who took the Catalan giants to victory. His premonitory ‘1% chance, 99% faith’ tweet before the ball started rolling at the Camp Nou could not have been more fitting for the excellent performance that followed.

The Brazilian star proved a constant nightmare that the astounded Parisian back-line simply had no answer for. His astute positioning, magical dribbling a…

Barcelona vs Paris Saint Germain Preview plus Champions League betting preview

Barcelona will host Paris Saint Germain on Wednesday 8th March in the return leg of the Champions League round of 16. Given the horrendous 4-0 defeat at the Parc Des Princes in the first leg, the Blaugranas are in need of a miracle to overcome the deficit.

Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez and the rest of the Barca stars underperformed so alarmingly against the French champions that even thinking about qualification for the quarterfinals seems more like science fiction than a realistic possibility.

Having said that, if there is a group of players who can achieve such a feat, that is Barcelona. If Luis Enrique's men score early enough in the first half and their attacking trident is inspired from the moment the ball starts rolling, nobody could rule out a thrashing of the Parisians at the Camp Nou -- The ideal comeback to silence their ferocious critics.

There's no two ways about it: Barca have not had a good season in terms of results and quality of football. That being said…
