Using football to reconcile people torn apart by war
Filmed 18 Sep 2012 – TEDxCopenhagen
About this talk
Play31 is a peace-building organization that uses football to bring together people who have been torn apart by war. The name refers to the 31st article of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that all children in the world have the right to play.
Jakob’s talk gives examples of how this process works at a micro-level and suggests that it oftentimes takes less than we think to make a difference and bring people together.
