Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2007
    This description of Jürgen Griesbeck's work was prepared when Jürgen Griesbeck was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
    Citizen organizations around the world use football (also know as soccer), as a way to reach out to young people. While these groups have various goals—safer streets, better schools, improved health, a cleaner environment—they have a powerful tool in common. Jürgen Griesbeck is building a worldwide network of citizen organizations that use football as a tool for social change, helping them to find new partners, and opening up the resources and recognition of the professional football industry and the broader public.
