This new cultural and sports centre offers many opportunities and activities for people of all ages and levels of abilities, and are expected to welcome 4,000 people per day. Sesc Guarulhos works towards becoming a good example of developing infrastructure to make more people, more active, more often.

“The opening of a Sesc centre in Guarulhos increases the working capacity to promote to workers from commerce, services, tourism sectors and the public in general, the opportunity to enjoy many programmes and activities that provide learning, encounter and dialogue. The delivery of this new equipment to the population reaffirms the institution's commitment to promote collective well-being in the communities in which it operates and also facilitates the access of all to the full experience of its city and region’s cultural dynamics”. Danilo Santos de Miranda, Regional Director of Sesc São Paulo.
