The first meeting both teams met in Amsterdam. Oscar (City Pirates/partner Belgium), Mohammed (CHANGEMAKERz/partner Netherlands), Abdelali (youngster CHANGEMAKERz) and me (Saber aka Coach Maleeq). We were together to discuss the exchange and how we were going to work together. That was the main focus. During this meeting we shared our knowledge ideas and story’s. The exchange was already set up by Oscar, we were going to work with a total of 4 countries: Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal. and Spain). Because we believe in the power of sports we named this project 'Games 4 Change!'. The main focus is that we share the power of sport as a tool.
I did a exercise named Free Writing where I let Oscar, Mohammed and Abdelali write on paper while they listened to calm music. Afterwards we shared tasks and went on from there on. We're going to visit Oscar in Antwerp to meet his youngsters and discover the place. See you soon!
