[:en]6-25 October, Wien
The Vienna street league organisation have developed an anti-racism workshop and printed materials for all their youth players in the intercultural Käfig League, which comprises 40 teams in all 23 districts of Vienna with approximately 500 regulars kicking the ball.
The workshops will be held throughout the Football People weeks during the teams’ trainings sessions. The sessions aim to support and prepare ethnic minority children and adolescents aged between 6 and 14 years for encounters with everyday racism in Austria. The sessions will equip the kids with tools how to handle racism emotionally; how to react to and counter racism in non-violent ways.
The Austrian first division clubs Rapid Vienna and Austria Vienna are sending professional players as guests and role models for the Käfig Leagues Anti-Racism-Cup.
