- collaboration and cooperation between people and states through the most effective mediums, and in the first place through culture;

- non-violence as a style of relationships between people, social groups and states and as a way of resolving, managing and transforming conflicts.

Furthermore, Art No.Vi., consistently with its statutory purposes, is committed and intends to engage in activities that contribute to the equitable redistribution of resources between the North and the South of the world, also through the promotion of international cooperation projects and aid to countries. under development, precisely with a view to real construction  of peace, as required by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to which the association refers.

ALON-GAN FC also had to its credit the promotion, together with other realities, of the Course for International Peace Mediators which took place for the first time in Bagnacavallo (RA) in 2003 and then for subsequent editions in Bertinoro.

For its part, the project "Music, a bridge between peoples" and the "Festival of young Mediterranean music" has been carrying out a project for eight years that focuses on the relationship between young people from completely different cultural, religious and social backgrounds. but which find a key to dialogue and coexistence in the language of music. The "bridge" of stringed instruments chosen as the symbol of the project "Music, a bridge between peoples" is in fact a key that does not "close", but opens doors and creates bridges, where our present stands up walls and gives space to distrust and fears.
