The initiative

The city of Brussels was hit by horrific terrorist attacks the 22th March 2016. Shortly thereafter, platform PlayandPeace was founded in close cooperation with the #Municipality #Molenbeek.

The #goals explained in video by PlayandPeace and Molenbeek. The #urgency communicated by the RWDM Girls. PlayandPeace and the partners involved want to inspire, motivate, encourage and connect.

Ahmed Larouz: “Our aim is to create more positive connections between people in Brussels and strengthen the social cohesion by building a place where the youth can safely play and learn. We want to built a sport infrastructure, central in the community: «Cruyff Court» Molenbeek.”

The Result

#Cruyff Court Molenbeek opened 22th March 2018 at Muzenpark in Molenbeek. The strategy made for #Molenbeek was turned into music and the song #ChangeOurGame was created. The press room keeps you informed.

Sport in General and football in particular is an excellent tool to bridge communication – and cultural differences. In football mutual respect is key and it’s a way to show that people can be proud of their origin and culture without having to isolate themselves from the rest of society.



Next: 2018 - 2019

The song ChangeOurGame will be at the heart of our next campaign. PlayandPeace and Rotary Club Brussels Cantersteen will announce the 28th June at the Cruyff Court Molenbeek the start of the new public campaign #ChangeOurGame in Belgium. You are very welcome to come. The ceremony will start at 17.00 hrs, followed by a mini-football tournament. So don’t miss it!

Youth for Climate

BENELUX Youth Climate Award

Deze prijs zal worden uitgereikt aan het beste klimaatvoorstel. De prijs daagt de jeugd in de #BENELUX uit om zelf met voorstellen te komen om al in één jaar de CO2 productie met minimaal 1 % te verminderen.

Bedenk een menukaart van zaken die jij zelf, je vrienden en familie kunnen doen om dit bereiken en bereken hoeveel CO2 er bespaard kan worden als iedereen meedoet. Komt je getal boven de 1% besparing uit, stuur je inzending dan voor 1 juni naar info@playandpeace.com

Voorstellen als investeren in wind- en zonne-energie zijn te algemeen en tellen niet mee. Het gaat om jouw directe omgeving en invloedssfeer.

Uiteraard hopen de initiatiefnemers dat alle Ministers van Milieu en Economische Zaken in de BENELUX deze prijs mee ondersteunen. Dit geldt ook zeer voor ons BENELUX parlement! Bedrijven gevestigd in de BENELUX mogen uiteraard de prijs ook mede ondersteunen.

The Waste Crisis is Global. Waste Masters Africa is established to support raising awareness of the importance of proper waste management and recycling across the great continent of Africa.

Per year the world is dumping and landfilling (in different qualities) 1,4 billion tons of municipal waste. This is an equivalent of 140 bags of 10 kilogram each on all cars in the world. Every year and building. Almost no African countries has developed an modern waste management and recycling infrastructure yet. So let’s team-up for this challenge. Together we can improve the situation!

Education and sharing of knowledge and expertise are key motors for #change!

Per year we dump 660 million tons of municipal waste. This is 5 fully filled Wembley stadiums per day! Two continents are the most affected. Asia and Africa. Let’s try to improve the situation. Together we win!

More to come soon!
