Our Partners

Join the Partner League

The GGWCup is developed by the Danish sports organization Eir Soccer, who in 2015 set out alongside with their first partner - UNDP - to use sport as an accelerator for change. Since then they have been creating sports events that inspire women to become champions of the 17 SDGs to help drive progress and change in their communities. Thank you to all our partners and supporters who make this possible. Please reach out to co-founder and Head of Partnership Rikke Rønholt if you would like to be part of building the Global Goals World of Action.

Grundfos brings water to life

The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals need all the attention they can get – especially the clean water and climate action goals.

Grundfos support Global Goals 6 and 13 in particular because we believe that we can actually make a difference in these two areas. With our energy-efficient pump solutions and extensive experience with water, we can contribute to the global effort to provide all human beings with access to clean water and sanitation.

Grundfos will participate in the GGWCup Copenhagen May 14 2019 and do the wave for Goal 6 and 13. Please join the wave here and use #goal6and13.
