football3 empower girls, women and Global Goals in Poland after COVID times

Inequalities and exclusion of girls and women is one of the biggest problems of sport in Poland. The isolation and exclusion of women and girls is confirmed by statistics. In football, the most popular sport in Poland, we have 1,125,159 registered players (of all ages), of which only (2.7% – 40,695) are women. Coaches in this sport are only 3% of all coaches. (Data: Physical culture surveys of the Central Statistical Office in 2017). By doing our work, we want to change it by doing it in smart way. We wanted to empower girls and women by:

  • implementing football3 in schools
  • organizing football3 certification training for early childhood teachers and sharing best practice via consent;
  • organizing public sports events promoting the Global Goal
  • running debates about equal access to sport for girls and boys (from an early age).

We believe that by working directly with schools and together with teachers and children, and by using a very innovative method, which is football3, we could increase awareness of the issue of equality in sport and the issues of Global Goals. All the activities presented below were co-financed by the FIFA Foundation and implemented in synergy with the project supported under the Active Citizens Program – National Fund financed by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Funds

Action 1: Preparatory workshops for implementation team

Workshop was organised: 8-10 of April  2022 in Gdańsk. In the workshop 20 leaders (12 femele + 8 male) have developed skills in the planning of football3 programs focusing on gender equality topic
