FWC “Make it Happen”: Friendly Football Match in Larnaca for Youth Ambassadors for MDGs

In the context of the European Union funded project called “Youth Ambassadors for the Millennium Development Goals”; Cypriot NGO Future Worlds Center sponsored young people in a ‘Make it Happen’ Football encounter in Larnaca on Saturday 19 December 2009. Football encounters are a fun and educational way to bring youth from Cyprus together so they can discuss ways Cypriot youth can work to achieve the MDGs among youths.

Over a period of two years, the project aims to raise awareness about the Millennium Development Goals both among young people and the public at large in Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Cyprus. The project will focus on:
• Raising awareness about the Millennium Development Goals and the interdependence between the EU and developing world;
• Involving young citizens in actions related to development education;
• Introducing a Global Dimension into civic activities already taking place in the four participating countries.

More information and Materials about the MDGs are available on the website.
