Spirit of Football and the The Ball project is funded by the Swedish Postcode Lottery to develop and open-source team-oriented, creative and interactive education resources.

Our goals

  • To understand climate change through the lens of football
  • To understand what the football community is and could be doing in terms of sustainability, and
  • To inspire and encourage personal and collective climate actions that benefit oneself and one’s community

Research on the significance of engaging existing communities to take climate action has inspired Spirit of Football to use The Ball to communicate climate change in a more tangible way and unite people who care about both football and the earth-ball we live on. With more than three billion people passionate about football, the football community holds huge potential to bring about positive change.
