In brief

Käfig League intends to pass on central values – by using the medium of sports – to strengthen communities and to support the living-together of various groups within the city of Vienna in Austria.

Vienna’s city parks, recreational areas and public sports sights (also known as ‘Käfige’ = cages) are a meeting point for numerous kids and adolescents, who out of various reasons do not take part in school or organised afterschool activities.

Problem to be tackled

Linguistic, social or economic barriers often prevent children and adolescents from taking part in recreational activities and therefore from integration.
