“Attitude, the 5th skill” is a new programme of the Education 4 Peace Foundation, which introduces Attitude in the football world and in sports in general. It represents the outcome of the “Master of your Emotions” project which was supported by the UEFA as part of its football and social responsIbility programme RESPECT.

The need to diminish violence in football, as well as in society more generally, has become widely acknowledged. This, along with advances in understanding human behaviour and in transmitting emotional skills to educators, children and teenagers, has created an excellent opportunity for football to contribute to behavioural social change.

The E4P foundation by integrating this new educational dimension in sports brings together football stakeholders supporting this change. It considers necessary that they share a common motivation and stay involved. Amateurs, professionals and their governing bodies, through partnerships, associate themselves to its vision recognising the strong correlation between attitude and athletic performance.

This initiative invites the attitude to be the 5th skill in sports, in complement to the physical, technical, tactical and mental skills. Its main objective is to educate and motivate the grassroots public (youth, parents, coaches) in their knowledge of themselves and the development of harmonious relationships with themselves and others. Professional players are also with us to share their own experiences.

 “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination."
