VISION AND MISSION
Bringing people together
Our vision - "Bringing people together" - builds on the basic premise that peace and stability is not an issue between nation states and governments alone. We believe that peace and stability is something civil society is practicing through dialogue and interaction. On this basis Cross Cultures exist with the objective to develop, participate in, and implement culture and sports cooperation across ethnic, national, social, political, and religious boundaries.
It is within this framework that Cross Cultures is using the Open Fun Football Schools programme as a catalyst to bring children, youth and adults to interact together across ethnic and social divides in order to create new stories, new ideas and common actions. By promoting local participation, volunteering and heterogeneous social networks, and by showing and putting people's experiences into words as well as putting their resources at stake in a new way, the programme contributes as an inspiration to those seeking to find a new, peaceful and sustainable way of solving common problems.
