THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES OF THE UNITED NATIONS
Our contribution to the SDG
We believe that society begins to exist when we recognise and accept others. That is why we want to build a more egalitarian and inclusive society. We support vulnerable children around the world through ‘Sport 4 Development’, because it is a tool for the prevention of violence and social exclusion, and favours access to education. The Barça Foundation want to contribute actively to the Sustainable Development Agenda for 2030, focusing on nine of the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
WITH THE MOST VULNERABLE CHILDREN
In 1994 the Barça Foundation was created as a pioneering initiative in sport in Spain.
Since then, both from a professional and organisational level, initiatives have been put in place that have helped to define the Foundation’s present day model.
