Beyond Sport, a sport for social change pioneer, will host Beyond Sport House presented by SAP in New York this week. 

The three-day event brings together thought leaders from around the world and aims to promote innovative thinking on ways for sport to play a role in solving society’s most important issues.

More than 50 speakers will be in attendance at the event held in the SAP Next-Gen Lab to discuss sport’s ability to make progress on issues such as climate change, sustainability and social justice, while Beyond Sport United will focus on the needs of brands, leagues and teams as well as their ability to make an impact on their local communities.

The sessions will address what it means for increasingly global organisations to think local and will include the likes of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, the NFL, the NBA, Unilever and the world’s largest esports organisation, ESL.
