Football, A People’s History to Europe. Legacies and Memories in History Education.
This project is the first to connect history education and football on a European scale. We aim for a freely available online educational resource on the history of football, including transnational source collections, joining learning activities and historical content that illuminate how football offers us a people’s history of Europe. We will engage a working group of history educators, historians, civil society, schools and local football clubs to create a framework on how football history can be used in history education in all European national systems.
This resource will be ready and widely used in time for the European Championship of 2020 to a large public that common European history education is possible.
