This year our flagship event, the Beyond Sport Global Summit and Awards, will take place in Johannesburg, returning to South Africa for the first time since 2011.
Over three days at venues across the city, including the Nike Football Training Centre in Soweto, The Vodacom World and community sites around Johannesburg. This year's Summit will be a festival of innovation, insight and inspiration, exploring the ways in which sport can be used to tackle the key issues that are prevalent in today’s society through the creation of pathways and opportunities towards healthier, socially inclusive and financially secure lives.
It will celebrate local and international changemakers as well as focus on the potential of young people and the future leaders that they will become – in sport, business, politics and, most importantly, in driving social change.
Through a tailored programme of community site visits, activity sessions, in-depth workshops and main stage panels, we will celebrate existing efforts of a local and global community of changemakers and create a new vision of the future with an event that will support, empower and inspire the next generation of young leaders, on and off the field.
