YOUNG SPORTS MAKERS

The Young Sports Makers programme is aimed at young people from across the world - athletes, social entrepreneurs, students and young professionals - who carry the voice of the Generation Z. The Young Sports Makers were one of the breakout successes of the inaugural edition of Global Sports Week in February 2020. They participated directly throughout the programme, voicing opinions and challenging received ideas through on-stage interactions with global leaders. A new Class of Young Sports Makers has been formed for Global Sports Week 2021 to support the new format of the event.

Meet the Young Sports Makers 2021

Global Sports Week has selected 30 Young Sports Makers who will play a key role in the 2021 edition of the event. The finalists have been chosen with the support of Yunus Sports Hub, global social business network creating solutions to local problems in and through sport.

16 nationalities are represented, with 19 females and 11 males forming the squad.

This year, a core group based all over the world will be involved in the event through the Global Sports Week digital platform, with further squads dedicated to each of the six GSWParis hubs – Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, Milan, Dakar and Los Angeles.

The Young Sports Makers will continue carrying the voice of the GenZ during the event and will also channel the questions from the participants on the digital platform to feed the discussions happening on the ground across the six hubs.

The Young Sports Makers are going to participate in a series of workshops delivered together with the Young Sports Makers Special Partners over the next year, before and after the main event. The workshops are designed as a learning and development opportunity and aim to involve the Young Sports Makers in exploring and shaping the future of sport.
