September 25, 2018

10 Hudson Yards, New York

The Global Goals World Cup New York is coming to Hudson Yards!



Tuesday September 25 we invite everyone to join us on the 48th floor and celebrate the 3rd annual Global Goals World Cup.  


The day will be filled with games, panel talks, music, workshops and a high level UN SDG Advocate Showmatch. It’s free to join - RSVP is necessary.


Door will open at 10 AM and performance artist Lilibeth Cuenca will do the opening ceremony at 11:45 AM


Please join us from the beginning and get the chance to win Global Citizen Festival tickets.  


In 2015 193 nations met at the UN and agreed to work together to end poverty, reduce inequality and halt climate change by 2030. It is the most ambitious plan ever and it’s going to take a lot of energy and engagement of humanity to reach the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that will make it happen … obviously we turned it into a sport.


The Global Goals World Cup is the first ever activist world cup for amateur women and the 16 teams will after each game get four points: Most scored goals, Actions for the Global Goals, Best Style and Crowd engagement. Go to to learn more
