This is Why We Give Points for Action at the GGWCup
The Global Goals World Cup is not your average soccer tournament.
We think changing the world is an extreme sport.
Sometimes –in order to change the world, you have to change the rules.
-so we did:
After each game 4 points are given:
This is why we give points for action at the Global Goals World Cup
In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.
Our governments have a plan to save our planet…it’s our job to make sure they stick to it.
The Global Goals are only going to work if we fight for them, and make sure that everyone knows about them. They will only work if "We The Peoples" -from the United Nations Charter, take massive and collective action.
But what makes it "massive" is not necessarily the scale of the individual action taken by you. It is the tsunami of progress and change that happens when we all do it!
It is so easy to be discouraged and think: "It will not make a difference what I do. I am just one person"
But, at the Global Goals World Cup, you are not alone. You have your team!
Why shouldn't the women you work, study, play and sweat with be the women you change the world with?
We believe, that a team of determined women is the most powerful action unit there is!
