This week, Dana Cup in Hjørring in Northern Denmark showed that they are both willing and able to live up to the pledge and take on the challenge. Each day, the players where introduced to cool soccer games, that bring the essence of each Global Goal to life. And the teams where asked to choose their favorite Global Goal to play for.
Thank you to brilliant Becca Todd for traveling to Hjørring to teach the kids the SDG games that she and our amazing crew of young coaches have been developing for the past two years. And to Marie Hansen for coordinating and editing videos. Soon we will make the games available on ggwcup.com for all coaches and teachers who would like to be part of raising awareness and spreading the word about the Global Goals through sport.
