Project „Europe is more than football 2012” was established during and after the European Football Championship 2012 in Ukraine in two hosting cities – Donetsk and Lviv. The main goals of the project were: bringing a spirit of international friendship to kids who had no contacts with international guests and any chances to get to the stadiums or fun-zones, but had been waiting for the sport event for several years. Together with international and local volunteers we had to create the spirit of international sport event for local kids and teenagers and learn a little bit more about Europe than only football.
