PLAY FOR GOAL 7
RENEWABLE ENERGY

WHAT’S THE GOAL?

Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

  • 1.1 billion people still live without electricity. Access to modern energy is crucial to improving security, health and education. .
  • By 2000 79 % of the world population had access to electricity.
  • By 2015 85 % of the world population had access to electricity.
  • BY 2030 ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

“The answer is to end our reliance on carbon-based fuels…
If we succeed, we create booming new industries, wealth, clean secure energy and maybe we prevent the greatest disaster so far in human history, saving millions of lives while improving billions more. If we fail, basically it’s business as usual while things slowly get worse all around us” – Al Gore.

  • Balance represent solar energy and sustainable energy.
  • Situp represents fossil energy.
  • Every players have to do an exercise to generate energy/power and receive a ball.
  • When they receive a ball they have to score.
  • However only the sustainable “balls” of energy can be reused.
  • The fossil energy “balls” can only be used once.

VARIATIONS
Change the movement to be soccer specific e.g. kick ups, step overs etc.

Energy Boost

by Myrna Møller, Denmark

Description of the game

  • This week we focused on kicking technique, learning how to kick the ball as hard as possible. We talked about that energy could be made by something moving really hard, and hitting something really hard.
  • The players therefore had to kick the ball towards the goal as hard as possible, using the techniques we had been talking about.
  • The focus was not on being precise, but on making as much energy as possible by kicking the ball really hard, and feeling the power they put into the ball.
  • Try to kick to different size balls and see what different type energy it takes. the energy to move the ball from the foot, hand or head.

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.

WRAP UP & SHARE

PUT YOUR TRAINING IMPACT ON THE MAP

If you have time, give the players a chance to talk solutions, and how they them selve can do something in their every day.

  • What happens if we only use fossil energy fuels?
  • What are renewable energy sources?
  • What other global goals is supported when reaching this goal?
