A diplomatic sports movement that uses football diplomacy and soft power to create dialogue and unite people. Our contribution to peace is to influence diplomatic, social and community relations by creating neutral environments.
Creating Dialogue &
In a world which is increasingly interconnected but riddled by divisive forces, we believe, now more then ever there needs to be a platform to create dialogue between communities and bring them together.
-CITIES FOR PEACE
We use soft power through an Educational Sports Peace Process which is broken down into two innovative initiatives ‘Peace Matches’ and 'Cities for Peace' which we use to achieve our strategic objectives.
For our action to be significant we align our methodology with central governments and governing bodies to positively intervene in sensitive areas and help bring about peace and act as impartial negotiators in areas where dialogue has broken down. Our entire organisation is built around a carefully considered plan of action we apply to every discussion we engage in.
It is imperative for all of us to continue the development and growth of football around the world. Football for Peace is a great example of sports diplomacy."
HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan
