Tag The Ball #TakeTheBall

When we created the Global Goals Ball we had no idea it would become an icon of the Global Goals movement. But it makes sense that an abstract idea like the Global Goals needs a playful physical manifestation to connect the hearts and minds of people. The ball is traveling the world and even has its own exhibition at the Nobel Peace Museum in Oslo.


We try to keep track of how many heads of state, VIP's and influencers who have accepted the challenge to #TakeTheBall. 

We are so proud and thankful, especially to Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg who has made it her mission to share the Global Goals ball with everyone she meets.

"I travel with the ball because it make people smile. It's possible to talk about serious matters with a smile - and everyone is enjoying football,” – Erna Solberg.
