"On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders will commit to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. End extreme poverty. Fight inequality & injustice. Fix climate change. The Global Goals for sustainable development could get these things done. In all countries. For all people."

This is the statement that has been made for Global Goals, a project that has been developed in an attempt to tackle the world's biggest problems, in order to create a 'perfect world'.

Poverty, hunger, health and education are just 4 of the 17 issues that will be tackled. A full list of these can be seen at

Worldwide awareness

The plan is for this project to be the talking point across the world, appearing on every website, billboard, television and radio broadcast, as well as in cinema's and schools, and even shared to mobile devices.

A massive boost for this is through the involvement of football, the greatest sport in the world, and one that is followed globally.

The likes of Gareth Bale, Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker have began the 'Dizzy Goals Challenge' in order to raise awareness of Global Goals, and now it's your turn.
