Global Sports Week is searching the world for nine projects using sport to create social and sustainable impact.

It has launched the GSW Social Booster – an accelerator designed to help grow and increase the impact of selected projects, which will be chosen in line with their contribution to three of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

–       Quality Education (SDG 4)

–       Gender Equality (SDG 5)

–       Climate Action (SDG 13)

The chosen projects will benefit from a one-year acceleration programme, delivered in partnership with 17 Sport, and including:

–       Free access to the full programme of GSW Paris, which will take place from February 5th to February 7th 2020.

–       Opportunity to pitch in front of investors and key leaders from the sports industry

–       Networking facilitations

–       Remote consulting

Applications can be made online at https://globalsportsweek.com/gsw-booster/ until December 4th.

GSW President and Co-founder Lucien Boyer says: « We believe sport has tremendous power as a lever of sustainable and societal development, addressing the major challenges in our fast-changing world.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to help project holders to find the best partners and development paths to increase their social impact and thus, leave a legacy beyond our first edition”
