A legendary soccer player teaches how to change the world

Soccer can be a very successfull tool when it comes to urgent things that have to be done, climate change for example. In Namibia, the Soccer-initiative “Global United FC” fits the role of a kickstarter very well. The players visit schools to get in touch with pupils and to spread the word about how the climate can be protected. Former professional soccer stars from all over the world take part. In Nambia all eyes are especially on Lolo Goraseb, who is a local soccer legend and today the president of the Namibia Football Players Union. Our reporter Thomas Mandlmeier had the chance to interview him during a “Global United FC” event.

Lolo Goraseb played longtime for the “Brave Warriors,” Namibias National team where he debuted at the age of 19 and went on to become the third most capped Namibian of all times. He started his career at the age of 17 for “Black Africa,” a Namibian football team from Katutura (Windhoek) that takes part in the Namibia Premier League.
