Cross Cultures is a non profit project association that has specialized in using grassroots sport - and in particular the Open Fun Football School program - as tool to

  • Reconciliation and coexistence - i.e. stimulate fellowship and cooperation through joyful games and sport between children and adults that are living in communities affected by war and internal conflicts.
  • Active citizenship and club formation - i.e. stimulate the formation of community sport clubs in compliance with the Scandinavian sports culture, which is characterized by keywords as voluntarism, equality, parents involvement and the basic principles of 'Sport-for-All'.
  • Cross-sector Crime Prevention - i.e. to use the Open Fun Football Schools community platform to facilitate cross-sector networks in local communities between School + Sport + Police inspired by Scandinavian SSP-pattern.        

Mission Statement

Cross Cultures is firmly convinced that JOYFUL GAMES is the best learning tool for stimulating social changes and a unique tool for facilitating bridging and bonding - communication and collaboration - between children and adults living in divided communities.

Correspondingly Cross Cultures is building our activities on our specific "fun-football-concept" that are caracterized by keywords like "dialogue", "fun games", "creativity", "child centred pedagogic", "bottom-up", "equality", "fellowship" and "voluntarism".
