The Approach

In partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Goalkeepers,  Global Goals Awards are an annual recognition of remarkable individuals taking action to tackle some of the world’s biggest issues and help to achieve the Global Goals by 2030. These awards serve to highlight the stories of young heroes, reward them for their work, incentivise them to continue and most importantly, inspire more action and innovation by local and global audiences at a time when it is needed most.
