Using chess as an instrument for integration

2:27 min

Children from a Stockholm suburb took on Pia Cramling, one of the first lady grandmasters, in a game of chess.

The students came from Rinkeby, an economically deprived area where many residents have an immigrant background. One-by-one they faced off against Pia Cramling at the capital's central station.

Tony Apéria, who helped organize the event, says the matches are all about togetherness and promoting better integration through chess.
