Wednesday, August 31, 2016 (between 10am and 3pm)

with Berlin based and international female football players and girls and women refugees

On the DAY FOR GIRLS AND WOMEN, DISCOVER FOOTBALL intends to bring together girls and women living in the region who have experienced flight or migration with women’s football teams and clubs from Berlin and Brandenburg as well as with the international teams taking part in the Festival.

We are looking for:

  1. Women's Football Teams who are curious about meeting football players from around the world as well as girls and women refugees living in Berlin
  2. Girls and Women Refugees who are interested in trying out some football and other exercises with German and international players

The morning is to include workshops, activities, football and other exercises in order to learn more about flight, migration, arriving and the role of sport. We would like to plan the details of this meeting jointly with all those taking part. Here are some ideas:

  • Mixed teams (refugees, local teams and festival teams) will play a mini-tournament
  • Ball-Olympics
  • Exercises and moderated discussions
  • Workshops in separate groups (girls, boys, women, men) with exercises (football or other sports) as well as content-related goals
  • Joint meal

The DAY FOR GIRLS AND WOMEN will take place on grounds or in a gym close to participating refugee shelters
