My pupils could not imagine that by learning about Eintracht Frankfurt, they can gain historical thinking skills and develop empathy.

Learning activities

We offer teachers in schools ready-made and transferable learning activities on European Football History that address social inclusion and promote diversity in the classroom. These resources are designed to help tackle rising intolerance and engage students in an innovative and meaningful manner.

Toolkit

We also develop a toolkit for using historical and cultural heritage dimensions of football to enhance social inclusion and promote diversity in non-formal settings. The toolkit is a user-friendly and practical collection of exemplar approaches to use with guidance on how to use them for youth workers and other educators involved in non-formal education.

The toolkit, lead by the Fare Network, will be available to browse and download here in 2021.
