AWARENESS: Akshay Kumar takes up the challenge
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is the first Indian personality to get behind the #dizzygoals challenge in support of a major campaign launching next month to make the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development famous.
Launching at the United Nations General Assembly by 193 world leaders, The Global Goals are a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030.
Using the connection of ‘goals’, the dizzy goals challenge invites personalities and the public to run around a ball until they’re dizzy and then to try score a goal.
The #dizzygoals for The Global Goals campaign is already breaking the internet as some of the world’s leading footballers were challenged to shoot a dizzy penalty. Real Madrid and Wales midfielder Gareth Bale took the first dizzy penalty challenge for The Global Goals. He was followed by former footballer Gary Lineker OBE, former England striker Alan Shearer OBE and Liverpool players Jordon Ibe and Joe Gomez.
Action star Kumar took the hilarious challenge in Houston, in the US during rehearsals for his sell-out concerts Fusion, which also marks the superstar’s 25th year in the film industry.
The Global Goals campaign aims to make the targets the most famous goals on the planet by sharing them with seven billion people in seven days from the moment they are adopted. The more people that know about the Goals, the more people will work to ensure global leaders drive change and the more young people will be inspired to join a new generation of global citizens.
