HOW WE HOST – REALIZE THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL OF YOUR COMMUNITY
Our local hosts are the most important key in a successful event. When we have identified a host, we co-create the funding strategy, special focus and legacy, which is going to be the unique quality of this specific event, and which will fit the local context. The GGWCUP model is built on partnerships, while we have guiding principles and key elements, which are universal – not two cups are the same.
We will mobilize our global partners and existing network in support. However, if operating in areas where we do not have a network,
we ask potential hosts to secure the following:
Access to a venue and ability to secure legal permits to hold an event, play music, serve food, provide sanitation etc.
A good funding strategy for approximately 75% of the cost through in kind contributions and donations/sponsorships.
A range of core partners to involve from: Media, NGOs government, businesses and grassroots
Generate great positive exposure for your city/community
Realize the sustainable development potential of your community by uniting stakeholders around the SDGs, and mobilize and engage the public
Be part of creating a positive legacy of raised awareness and action
Certain elements are a universal part of a GGWCUP:
Global Goals: Branding of the goals at events Teams must play for a goal to compete in the event
Rethinking the active space: We work with artists, architects, and youth to challenge the conventional setup of a sports event. We are always examining new interpretations of what it means to be an athlete and where we can play sport
Long table dinner: We always eat, talk, and meet at eye level after the games
Amateurs: GGWCUP is for everyone. We want to make sure that the girl, who never got picked in gym class feels welcome here
Partnerships for the goals. GGWCUP creates multi-sector partnerships for the goals. We believe we are stronger together
