Fare2015 Network seminar was organized in Barcelona 12.-13.6.2015. Some of Europe’s leading campaigners against discrimination gathered in Barcelona for two days for a conference on exclusion and discrimination within football. The Fare network is an umbrella organization that brings together individuals, informal groups and organizations driven to combat inequality in football and use the sport as a means for social change.
Tewodros Guday from Fimu took part in the conference. There were 139 participants from 38 different countries. The program was versatile with numerous speakers: Clarence Seedorf, UEFA Global ambassador for diversity and change; activists and NGO leaders and representatives from UEFA and FIFA. The opening meeting was organized at the City hall and the actual seminar took place on Friday. On Saturday there was an annual meeting and the election to choose the members to the Board of Directors.
The conference was really interesting and gave a lot of new ideas and new contacts.
