It is almost impossible to understand everything that has happened in 2017! We started in Nairobi, creating the first African Global Goals World Cup together with Danida and Save the Children. Then on to New York , first for the CSW where we launched the SDG5 Dream Team project together with the Permanent Mission, and then back again for the Global Final, partnering with UNDP, GAIN and again the Permanent Mission of Denmark to the UN. Then straight to Bangkok, teaming up with our new friends NIST International School and Chelsea FC Foundation.
We also launched the Impact Games site. -Thanks to a huge effort from Marie Hansen and our great coaches! Much more about that in 2018.

The list of amazing people that we feel grateful for having met and worked with is so long that it would fill the whole blogpost! We hope you all know who you are. But a big THANK YOU to all our partners who make this possible. To our amazing ambassadors and referees. Our teams -you remind us every day why we do this! And to our volunteers and crew of hard working and brilliant people. YOU ARE THE BEST! 

Let's together make 2018 even more filled with playful and passionate action and football for the world we want.

See you in January when Dubai hosts the first MENA region GGWCup in The Sustainable City 
Partnering with Sustainable Mindz and a group of local supporters. We are so excited about having Bollywood star John Abraham, and Danish footballer Allen Nielsen on our referee team.
