The 2020 Beyond Sport Global Awards Categories 

 

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. In 2016, we realigned the Beyond Sport Global Award categories with these Global Goals, allowing us to focus our efforts to tackle the world's biggest problems.
