Under the auspices of the IOC, FIDE and UNESCO, it is proposed to establish the Space «Chess Encounter for Concord» in the city of Jerusalem, in which people of any belief or idea come together to learn, practice and perfect the game.
It is also conceivable, following the model of the West-East Divan Orchestra created by the universal musician (born in Argentina) Daniel Barenboim, that a representative team of the Space be selected, its members being nominated for their chess talent, regardless of any other consideration.
Within this framework, specialized classes will be offered, tournaments will be organized, learning lines will be promoted, a chess school will be forged and activities will be proposed in which the game operates as a therapeutic and social tool.
Children and adults of all genders, of all races, of all religions will live there, for the simple fact of being united by curiosity and passion towards an ancient game that is a civilizing product in whose creation and evolution various cultures contributed.
Today, in a 21st century in which efforts must be redoubled for the sake of Peace and Harmony among peoples, it is possible, it is desirable, it is necessary that, from the city of Jerusalem, lighthouse of Humanity and the epicenter of three of the most important religions of the world, a clear signal can be given that chess can contribute, with its grain of sand, to the brotherhood of peoples that must coexist in absolute respect for cultural diversity and under the flag of peace.
 Idea presented by the author to Eng. Petrucci, President of FADA, on November 17, 2021, for the purpose of submitting it to the authorities of FIDE and the Argentine Olympic Committee.
