PLAY FOR GOAL 10
REDUCED INEQUALITiES

WHAT’S THE GOAL?

Reduce inequality within and among countries.

  • By 2030, reduce to less than 3 per cent the transaction costs of migrant remittances and eliminate remittance corridors with costs higher than 5 per cent.
  • By 2030, empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status.
  • By 2030, progressively achieve and sustain income growth of the bottom 40 per cent of the population at a rate higher than the national average.

Why Addressing Inequality Matters

Inequality threatens longterm social and economic development, harms poverty reduction and destroys people’s sense of fulfilment and self-worth. This, in turn, can breed crime, disease and environmental degradation.

Most importantly, we cannot achieve sustainable development and make the planet better for all if people are excluded from opportunities, services, and the chance for a better life.

FAIR GAME

by Steven O’Reilly, Chelsea FC Foundation, Bangkok

Description of the game

  • Organize a ‘normal’ football match and illustrate inequality with different goal sizes.
  • Divide the players into two teams. If you are teaching both girls and boys make a girl team and a boys team. Have the girls be only 4 against 7.

VARIATION

  • Endless of ways to illustrate this: One team can walk or only walk backwards, the other can run.

ORGANISATION

  • Players: This game could be run with numbers of players depending on the field size.
  • Area: Everything works perfect.
  • Materials: Balls – Bibs – Goals, different sizes
  • Level: All players
  • Ideal for age/grade: Everyone can have fun with this.
  • Estimated time fromstart to end: You can use this game as a warm up or a short fun break during a school day and lesson.

FUN WAYS TO WARM UP TO THIS GAME

If you make 10 minutes matches this game can be a great warm up. Maybe start on just part of the field and using hands throwing the ball in the beginning.

BIB TAG

by Becca Todd, United Kingdom

Description of the game

  • Simple running & catching game in which players have bibs tucked into their shorts and try to steal other players’ bibs (like tag but with stealing bibs).
  • In this game the players start with uneven numbers of bibs so that inequality can be discussed.
  • (Younger players, or older players just for a fun warm-up.)
  • Every player starts spread out in the pitch with their bib/s tucked into their shorts like a tail and a ball. Anyone can catch anyone else’s bibs so it is all against all. while they drible around.
  • When a player steals a bib, they add it to the ones in their shorts.
  • If a player’s bib is taken, they keep running and playing the game- and search for other players’ bibs to steal.
  • after playing for lets say 2-3 minutes the coach stops and everyone counts their bibs..  some will have zero some 2 or more. Talk to them about equality and let them start with the number they ended with, and let them play again for a few minutes.

VARIATIONS

Add footballs for players to dribble simultaneously.

ADVANCE THE GAME

Add extra catchers and reduce area size.

ORGANISATION

  • Players: Any number. But enough bibs for at least one each.
  • Area: Any size – start big and reduce area size while playing to make it more difficult.
  • Materials: Bibs and balls

Create GAME SITUATION

There are so many great ways to create a game. Allow the players to be quite creative with this by introducing the goal at the beginning of the match and asking them how this could be included:  Do one team have a big goal and the other a small. Do everybody play with a glas of water or change a rule every minute. 

A simple way to bring in the Global Goals when playing a match, is that every time a team scores or make a save, or during a water break they can double their points or get a point by stating a Global Goal and what they could do to help promote this in their community. Easiest to play small side games with 3-6 players, so they can hear each other.

You can always have several games going at the same time. There are some rule ideas under Goal 17.
