Thematic areas



I am a professional footballer for FC Union Berlin and the Norwegian National Team. I'm also the creator and founder of We Play Green (2020), an independent, player-driven, non-profit organisation whose mission is to mobilise the global football family in supporting the Green Shift.

The Green Shift is possible and urgently needed, but it is short on public support. I believe that football can help save the planet and mankind since it is the world's largest social phenomenon, and football players are the world's most influential people.

Therefore, with my organisation, I hope to create a movement that mobilises all 5 billion football family members which includes the grassroots, players, clubs, communities, businesses, institutions, and decision-makers in supporting the Green Shift.
