Drapers takes on Global Goals challenge

The United Nations introduced a new set of Global Goals today (September 25), with the aim of tackling extreme poverty and climate change over the next 15 years.

To raise awareness of the goals, filmmaker and Comic Relief founder Richard Curtis will launch Project Everyone, a campaign to reach 7 billion people across the world between September 26 and October 2.

In support of this, members of Drapers’ editorial, commercial and events teams will take part in a ‘Dizzy Goals’ challenge later today. Participants will run around a football 13 times before shooting for a goal.

A video of the challenge will be uploaded to and on our Twitter account @Drapers.

The UN’s 17 global goals, which include bringing an end to poverty and inequality and creating sustainable cities and communities, replace the Millennial Development Goals set in 2000.

A Global Citizen Festival will take place in Central Park, New York, on September 26 to mark the launch. The concert, which will feature acts such as Pearl Jam, Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay, will air on BBC One on Monday, September 28 at 10.35pm.
