Going Beyond Sport: How the sport industry can — and should — help achieve the UNSDGs. This panel will not only explore challenges and ideas, but share commitments and actions from high level decision-makers in sport around key UNSDGs.

Announcements will be made aligning to SDGs for Climate Action, Reduced Inequalities, and Health and Wellbeing – all of which will outline how they are using sport to address them. These announcements will include a $1million dollar fund going toward play equity; a partnership with stadia to go plastic free; and a new program committed to reducing childhood obesity.
