UEFA has been supporting the “Master Your Emotions” (MYE) programme since 2007. MYE aims to integrate education in behaviour awareness into grassroots football training, with respect as its core value. The initiative focuses on programmes and trainings for young players, trainers and referees. It aims to have clubs becoming centres of excellence in teaching “emotional wellbeing” – how to understand and manage one’s own emotions, so as to better communicate with others – as well as teaching physical and technical skills.


The Spirit of Humanity Forum is a new global network of organisations, communities and individuals committed to catalyse effective systemic change in governance by promoting love and compassion in decision making. We take part in co-organizing the Spirit of Humanity Forum in Iceland. The first event took place in September 2012 and the second in April 2014.

Together we are promoting citizenship values for the education of the next generations. We are grateful for this collaboration, and happy to integrate some of the beautiful quotes of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in our book, “Master of Your Emotions”. We are going to collaborate more in 2015.

Mind and Life Institute is a non-lucrative organisation seeking to understand the human mind and the advantages of contemplation techniques with a view to alleviating human suffering and improving well-being. It bridges the gap between scientific domains and the empiric knowledge of contemplative traditions. E4P works in partnership with Mind and Life Institute Europe in an education programme. The initiative targets identifying and valorising socio-emotional education projects in schools in Europe.

We are very excited to announce that we have been working closely with The Arsenal Foundation to develop two pilot programmes using material based on the newly launched ‘Master of Your Emotions’. The pilots which focus on important areas such as self awareness and listening skills will be delivered to two of Arsenal’s community projects starting in the new year. 

Our wide-scale collaboration with Olympique Lyonnais (OL) is a long-term plan to apply “Master of your Emotions” in all the major training programmes of the club.


E4P is a member of Sport and Development, a resource platform where organisations can connect and share information on Sports and Development.

IFOTES, founded in 1967, brings together the national associations of more than 400 Telephone Emergency Services (TES) in 25 countries. TES offer emotional support, mostly 24 hours a day, to anyone in need of a genuine human relationship based on non-judgemental, active listening. This support is offered by experienced, trained volunteers. It is entirely confidential and free of charge.

E4P and IFOTES share a partnership promoting emotional health and well being. In 2007 they initiated the first International Congress on Emotional Health.

In July 2010, an IFOTES Congress took place in Vienna under the theme “Exploring Alternatives to Violence”. It was supported by E4P, with UEFA, through the "Master Your Emotions" programme.
