Did you know for every one Wikipedia page about a woman, there are four about men?

We want to thank ALT.dk and Wikipedia for their campaign to encourage #flerekvinderpåwiki.

Because wikipedia is an open editing platform, we have the power to be the change we want to see. There is no excuse for 83 % of all biographies on Wikipedia to be about men.

Help contribute to our Global Goals World Cup Wikipedia page. Have you played in a GGWCup tournament, know someone who has, are you on our Dream Team? We would love to have you and more than 3,000 women who have played in our tournament in the GGWCup article on Wikipedia.

Europe is teaming up for a Global Goals World Cup in Copenhagen this May

Through leading Global Goals tournaments around the world, we have come in contact with many inspiring and committed female coaches, who we believe are one key component to come up with new new approaches to get more women active.

Because we, as women working in the sport and football sector, need to come up with new approaches to get more women active. So with co-founding from Erasmus+ Programme we set out to test new approaches and invited twelve european coaches to take part in our special EU Ambassador Couch Programme.

Nanna Dahl have met with two of the coaches and talked about how it’s going with setting the teams and getting ready for the GGWCup Europe in Copenhagen.

GGWCUP Bangkok is over and we have a winner - and in many ways all of the teams are winners today. I say that after every tournament, but am serious. These teams of women around the world are coming together to speak up and take action. Its magic and I cry everytime, it just touches my heart & soul so deeply. Today teams playing and connecting are coming from all over Thailand. Talking air pollution, gender equality and education as a big driver for change. Bangkok’s tournament is where we have had the most teams of teachers, heard curious and playful conversations, and had a great level of dance on and off the field.

If these all sound like the trappings of a fantasy land, it's because most countries still struggle to provide them in some way, shape, or form - even the rich ones.

Team: Play Onside

We are Burmese migrant women living and working in Mae Sot a city on the Thai-Burma border. We all work as coaches and educators in PlayOnside, an organization that uses football to promote gender equality among the Burmese community displaced in Thailand. For all of us, playing football was something that we could not imagine when we were kids. We have started coaching and playing 2 years ago and become a great role model of the change in our communities. We want to join this event to promote the goal of Gender Equality in the field of sport.

We believe that together we are stronger!

GOOD LUCK!
