THE BEYOND SPORT GLOBAL AWARDS IN 2019
Over the past decade, the Beyond Sport Global Awards have been supporting, celebrating and providing funding for some of the best and most innovative projects using sport to trigger positive social change.
Beginning in 2016, the Global Awards aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a roadmap adopted by world leaders to stimulate action in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet through 2030.
In 2019, we are innovating the way we support sport’s role in achieving the Global Goals.
Categories Aligned with Global Goals
Recognizing individual projects using sport to achieve a specific UNSDG.
Collective Impact Awards
A new initiative to drive collaboration in order to achieve the Global Goals. Through a deeper, larger investment grant, the each Collective Impact Award will go to three to five organizations ranging in focus (from region, to sport, to size) using sport around a specific Global Goal.
Global Goals Task Forces
The Collective Impact Award winners will be designated as a Global Goals Task Force, working together over the course of a year to utilize the larger fund to collaboratively increase their impact around the Global Goal.
Throughout the process, the Global Goals Task Force, and its funders, will be promoted through a digital campaign, which will track impact and encourage others to join the effort to address the Global Goals through sport.
Special Recognition Awards
Celebrating people and projects using sport to address the most pressing issues of the year.
