FOOTBALL IS MORE – 6th international CSR Forum in Brunnen

For the sixth time, the CSR Forum of the FOOTBALL IS MORE Foundation was held from October 2nd to 3rd. At the Seehotel Waldstätterhof in Brunnen, around 150 representatives of football clubs, non-governmental organisations, associations, foundations, companies, politics and universities from all over the world came together to discuss the facetious wealth of corporate social responsibility and social commitment.

Among the high-profile guests out of the sport as AC Milan, SV Werder Bremen, FC St. Pauli, Liverpool FC, Leicester City, Chelsea FC, Everton FC, Real Madrid, Benfica Lisbon, Paris Saint-Germain, we also could welcome the DFL Foundation, the Austrian Football Association, the U.S. Soccer Foundation, as well as representatives of the associations FIFA and UEFA. The focus was on best practice exchange and networking. In addition to representatives out of the sport, numerous experts from politics, NGOs, business and science were on-site.

The schedule was filled with complex issues, such as

  • EU legal requirements for the preparation of a sustainability report
  • management indicators for the assessment and process control of CSR strategies
  • the reintegration of disabled people into the working world
  • committed best practice examples, evaluation and impulses out of the applied foundation work from sports

For two days The FOOTBALL IS MORE Foundation brought together high-quality representativesto strengthen existing networks and create new networks, true to the motto “together we are stronger“!
