The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. Sport will play a key role in driving this global change to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure all enjoy peace and prosperity. As such, sporting events can act as a catalyst to drive this change bringing communities together and creating an unforgettable experience.
