THE 2020 BEYOND SPORT GLOBAL AWARDS CAMPAIGN
LEARN. BE INSPIRED. AMPLIFY.
 

In a year when we could all use some inspiration, motivation and hope, we’re giving you the opportunity to embrace sport for social change on a deeper level.

From September through December, across Beyond Sport’s platforms, we’re taking you on a journey around the world to uncover exactly how the 16 amazing organizations who make up the 2020 Beyond Sport Global Awards Shortlist are using sport with intention in pursuit of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs) -- all in the lead up to the exciting Winner Reveal in December.  

Immerse yourself in their work - in video, picture and words - and then expand their reach by sharing with your networks in celebration of the human spirit and determination to create a better world for all. And, in November we will be announcing the winners encompassing Collective Impact on Gender and Racial Equality and the Courageous Use of Sport.

 

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN TAKE THE JOURNEY 

1. Follow us on Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook and sign up for our mailing list for the stories on heroes using sport to make a difference in communities around the world, which will be gradually released across the three months.

2. Each week we'll release the inspiring stories of the shortlisters in each category and information on the SDGs they are working to achieve across our platforms. View our campaign schedule below and mark your calendars so you don’t miss out.
Bookmark this page for easy access to the links for all the content.  

3. Starting September 15, learn and hear from the shortlisters on Beyond Sport's IGTV and YouTube channels through ongoing campaign videos.

4. Register to join us for three-part Beyond Sport House from Home series - taking place across October and November - where we’ll dig deeper into issues across the campaign.

5. Most importantly - please amplify the experiences and impact of these amazing organizations and individuals who are leveraging sport for people and planet.
