EUROCLIO initiative “Football. A People’s History of Europe” aims to launch a Europe-wide project that addresses societal challenges through the transformational potential of football and its history. The project is built around a main objective on how historical learning through the lens of football can develop young people’s competences like knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values. The shared football history of Europe can generate a sense of belonging and ultimately sense of responsibility for active citizenship, especially for young people who are not normally interested in school or history. The rich history of football makes it possible to build positive cultural contribution to diverse society.
The project mobilises history educators, football historians, pedagogy experts, education policy makers, community workers and football stakeholders to work together to deliver innovative teaching and learning materials. This is achieved through collaborative design work and piloting. Historical content and educational resources will be made available for use on the Historiana website.
