August 7, 2020By admin
“Let us support all of those who are using sport as a force to advance equality and opportunity…sport organizations who are taking action to level the playing field, so that sport not only creates more opportunities for women and girls on the field, but leads the way in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment across all of society.” – Phumzile Mlambo, Executive Director of UN Women
DRIVING COLLABORATION TO ACHIEVE GLOBAL GOALS
The Beyond Sport Foundation established the Collective Impact Awards in 2019 to bring together the best and most innovative organizations from around the world that are using sport to address specific UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs or Global Goals) – to facilitate and fund collaboration to drive greater impact.
