Scoring the Global Goals 

The Global Goals World Cup activates the groundbreaking potential of sports and play with purpose. Since 2016, the Finals have been played in New York City during UNGA. This year, Reykjavík Global Forum Conversationists have the chance to see the action up close and to judge the “game” of Iceland’s President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, who will be acting as referee. 

Teams will compete in Iceland in partnership with Reykjavík Global Forum – Women Leaders 2021 and Young Professional Women in Iceland. Each team champions one of the Global Goals, and the winner not only wins the tournament but has the opportunity to have their work in advancing global progress amplified across the world stage.
