The Bulletin Podcast – Episode 02 – Spirit of Football e.V.

Dear readers and listeners,

We are very proud to bring you the second episode of The Bulletin Podcast.
The podcast’s goal is to interview the fascinating students and researchers of the Brandt School and hear experiences and voices from all over the world.

In this second episode, our host Maria Brackin interviews Andrew Aris, a Brandt School Alumnus, and President of Erfurt-based NGO Spirit of Football e.V.

Andrew and the Spirit of Football help to organize and implement global learning education projects in schools, orphanages, and communities. They run fair play football tournaments and undertake road trips to World Cups and European Championships. They bring those experiences and encounters into an interactive education curriculum. The project is called One Ball One World.

We will be thrilled to hear your feedback, as well as to receive suggestions for the next episodes.
