This will be the third time the Foundation is playing for SDG 13 in a GGWCup.

 
Our planet is burning , literally — from the Amazon to the forests in Borneo. Climate change and global warming are the biggest threats to the future of humankind . This a goal worth playing for — our lives and that of future generations depend on us mitigating climate change.
— Kehkashan Basu
