WHAT IS GLOBAL GOALS WORLD CUP ?
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone
We decided to turn it into a sport.
The Global Goals World Cup is a social action World Cup for women from all over the world. It is for everyone! You do not have to be an experienced football player to enter. We have changed the rules, so that taking action, being creative and brining your crowd is just as important as scoring goals.
So are you a passionate about making a difference? Do you know 6 women: Friends/ Teammates/ Co-Workers etc. Who want to play some five-a-side football with you? Then you should register your team for the Global Goals World Cup. Registration is free, But the number of teams at this championship is limited to max 24. So your currency is Global Goals Action!

WHO WE ARE, WHY WE DO THIS
Why do we do this?
Despite the many advances in combating poverty, conflict and corruption, women and children in many countries still face economic disparity, physical and emotional abuse, violence, discrimination and a lack of opportunities. They are also often the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. By leveraging voices such as GGWCup and UNDP Ambassador Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s, UNDP aims to rally public support to address these issues. During a press conference last fall following his appointment as their newest Goodwill Ambassador, he affirmed, “My main mission as UNDP Goodwill Ambassador will be to raise awareness and support for the Global Goals for a better future for all, which cannot be achieved without empowering women and protecting our planet”.
As a not-for-profit school founded on the principles of the UN, NIST shares UNDP's mandate in advocating for the SDGs through the school's mission to inspire growth, empower individual excellence and enrich lives. The most recent graduates included students who founded a non-profit coffee company in partnership with farmers in northern Thailand, built an early childhood centre in Cambodia and funded scholarships for children of the school's support staff. NIST alumni often go on to become advocates in their communities, including the Class of 2007's Praya Lundberg, a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
CHELSEA FOUNDATION & EIR
Both Chelsea FC Soccer School Bangkok and Eir Soccer share a passion for building communities and sparking change through sport. We believe that sport has a unique power to unite all kinds of people around the common goal of making the world better. This partnership with Chelsea, NIST and the UNDP is a perfect example of the kinds of innovative alliances that are needed in order to accelerate progress towards sustainable development, and we look forward to expanding the Global Goals World Cup series to Asia!
