Only Water promotes the SDGs in sport
Many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that appear in the 2030 Agenda approved by the United Nations (UN), have a strong connection with active sports participation, specifically the points that address health support, education and gender equity.
Although, until recently, sporting events were associated with certain habits that can harm the environment, such as consuming large amounts of water in single-use plastic containers.
In consideration of this, last weekend the first half of the Punta Umbría 2020 European Duathlon Championship and the Huelva European Triathlon Cup were displayed, which have developed a multitude of actions to achieve compliance with the maximum points established by the UN within the SDG program.
Only Water, which is firmly committed to achieving the SDGs, was in charge of supplying the water consumed by both athletes and the organization staff and volunteers who participated in the sporting event.
At the same time, with our customized packaging for Wells Without Borders, we contribute in solidarity to ensure that drinking water reaches the most remote communities in Africa and America.
The Duathlon European Championship also featured the Paratriathlon modality, where athletes with disabilities took part in it as an official event.
The championships ended with a tree planting action in Punta Umbría.
Paddle tournament or equality.
In the framework of Women’s Day, this weekend, Alhaurín de la torre was the scene of the I Pull Paddle for equality organized by the city council through the departments of Social Affairs and Youth and Sports, in order to promote equity in all areas.
María del Carmen Molina, Councilor for Equality, pointed out that 20% of the proceeds would go to different associations that fight for equality and 80% to finance the activities carried out by the Youth Correspondents of Alhaurín de la Torre.
Race for women in Viladecans.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day and under the motto “the course that gives me the most!” The 6th Viladecans Women’s Race, Barcelona, ??has taken place. A 60-minute closed-circuit tour that could be done walking or running and was open to everyone.
Men and boys were able to support all the women who participated in the race, doing the same 5 km route, without numbered bib or chip. We could not miss the opportunity to support women in their day, offering our water at the sporting event, as an impulse measure for the fulfillment of the fifth point of the World Goals.
