Q&A and basketball with president Herbert Hainer
Three years ago, FC Bayern and SOS-Kinderdörfer weltweit launched the 'Arena of Change' at the FC Bayern Campus. In this joint innovative educational project, 60 girls and boys are given opportunities for personal development, away from the pressure to perform and social hierarchies, by encouraging them to discover their own talents and new interests through permanent exchange. They are accompanied on their way by experienced educationalists from SOS Children's Villages and management of the German record champions. FCB president Herbert Hainer and Barbara Gruner, director of SOS Children's Villages International, visited the 'Arena of Change' Summer Festival to answer a wide variety of questions from the children. The two also took part in a basketball taster session with the kids, organised by Elias Harris from the FC Bayern Basketball team.
FC Bayern's education team at the Campus received the "Promotion of Mental Health in Youth Performance Sport" award from the Robert Enke Foundation for its "Mental Health Awareness Month":
