Look out for this amazing team of European Global Goals Ambassador Coaches as they set out to change the world for the better and for the more active. “One woman has power. One team has impact. I’m excited to have joined the special EU Ambassador Coach Training supported by Erasmus+ in Copenhagen and learn to use sport as a catalyst for change,” – Katerina Salta, Global Goals Ambassador, Greece.
12 Female Coaches from all over Europe have been selected to accept the Global Goals Challenge: They will each set a team of awesome women from their home country and participate in the Global Goals World Cup in May. The players on the teams are a new kind of sports stars and role models. They have all had to overcome social or cultural barriers to participate in sport. They will help us better understand what it takes to engage more women in sport, and make them feel like they belong - they are our experts!
Sapphire Carrington is sweating, and cursing me under her breath for dragging her out on this morning run around Soufriere a small village about 30 minutes drive from Roseau, the Capital of Dominica. In two days Roseau will host the 9th Global Goals World Cup tournament -The first in the Caribbean. After that, I have to return to freezing Denmark. So I am determined to absorb as much of the abundant beauty and warmth of this island as I can!
For weeks our teams have been taking actions and making noise for the world they want. Today they will PLAY! But in this cup, it is not just about being the strongest and the fittest, but also about being the fiercest fighters for the world we want!
