Sign The Ball and Pledge Commitment
With increased awareness that the climate crisis is touching every aspect of human life, football being no exception – The Ball will listen to, accumulate and deliver climate action messages, acting as a megaphone, as it meets with numerous actors in education, sport, business and politics in the 23+ countries along the way from London to Auckland.
The Ball will especially target the football community en route: visiting clubs, meeting players, administrators and media representatives and being presented to fans at matches and events. The Ball will collect messages of support, signatures and climate pledges from theses individuals. High profile football personalities, like SOF’s Fair Play Ambassador Jürgen Klopp, will make climate and equality pledges on route in 2022 and 2023.
The Ball’s message supported by these pledges, learnings from university partners and research en route, and Media/TV/Film/Social Media, will be delivered to FIFA at the 2023 Women’s World Cup (Australia/ New Zealand). Our partner Worldmark Films will help us showcase these messages and to reach a wide audience.
The learnings from The Ball 2022/2023 will be used to influence further climate action leading up to and at both the “United 2026” Men’s World Cup (Canada/Mexico/USA) and the 2027 Women’s World Cup (tbd).
