Call for Participation: Football Zajedno Opening Conference

The fairplay Initiative (Austria), and the Football Associations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro have started the joint project Football Zajedno and invite you to an opening conference in Sarajevo.

Football Zajedno aims to promote equality and non-discrimination. The organisation will use the popularity of football as a medium for intercultural dialogue, the promotion of human rights and social inclusion. A focus is on the empowerment of disadvantaged groups and enhancing the equal participation of girls and women in and through football.

We now invite relevant stakeholders and potential future partners from the Western Balkans region to a conference in Sarajevo to kick-off the project and to discuss current issues

We  are  looking for representatives  of  grassroots  groups, NGOs  and  other civic  society  organisations including  minority groups,  who  use  football and  sport as  a  tool  to  overcome  nationalism  and  to enhance  human  rights  and  diversity. In addition, we  encourage  football  stakeholders  (associations, clubs, coaches, players ) who are active in the field of social inclusion, anti-discrimination, human rights and/or diversity to join the event.

Please note: The target countries of the project are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro. The Conference language is English.
