PLAY FOR GOAL 2
NO HUNGER

What’s the goal?

To end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. A world with zero hunger can positively impact our economies, health, education, equality and social development. It’s a key piece of building a better future for everyone. Additionally, with hunger limiting human development, we will not be able to achieve the other sustainable development goals such as education, health and gender equality.

Why does it matter?

Extreme hunger and malnutrition remains a barrier to sustainable development and creates a trap from which people cannot easily escape. Hunger and malnutrition mean less productive individuals, who are more prone to disease and thus often unable to earn more and improve their livelihoods. There are nearly 800 million people who suffer from hunger worldwide, the vast majority in developing countries.

  • Follow through after striking the ball in the direction of your shot to get more power and accuracy.

Football Tips for goalkeepers

  • Stand on the balls of your feet with bent knees so that you can react quickly.
  • Hands out wide to fill the goal and intimidate the strikers!
  • Watch the ball carefully, you can also look at the body position of the striker to help you to judge which way they will shoot.

Fun way to warm-up to this game
This could be a great warm up. As the players dribble they can do many moves.

How to create a game situation

Same game, but divide the group into 2-3 or 4 teams. This time you time the game and count how many goals they score in 2 minutes. This can be repeated several times.

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.
