The first 3-day thematic workshop within the Football Makes History project will take place from 1-3 February in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The central theme of the workshop will be discrimination and anti-semitism. The Anne Frank House will be the workshops’ host, regarding its unique position in the world as a place of memory and responsibility to prevent discrimination world-wide. The programme of the workshop will include interesting presentations by experts on discrimination, insight into the Anne Frank House’s FanCoach project and group sessions on the development of educational material using football as a door opener to address issues of discrimination.
On 17-20 January 2019 the partners of the project Learning to Disagree, along with all the core team members will come together in Maynooth, Ireland for a short term staff training.
