GGWCup
GLOBAL GOALS WORLD CUP

Our Partners

GGWCup Partners

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 Majken Gilmartin if you would like to join the coalition of sports for sustainable development.

“Danfoss is already active in many public-private partnerships, mainly with the United Nations Environment Program, the UN Global Compact and Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All). This time is different, the Global Goals World Cup really allows for active engagement of employees. “Awareness-raising is the first thing we need to do, to hold our governments accountable when it comes to the implementation of the Global Goals.
