Taking Action: Promoting Change Through Sport
For yet another year, Action Qatar was chosen by PITCH to help them locally and regionally promote the premier Doha GOALS event recently held at the Aspire Academy. Under the high patronage of the Emir of Qatar, His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the aim of the 3rd edition of the Doha GOALS Forum was that of bringing together a wide variety of speakers and delegates from both the private and public sector, creating important initiatives for social and economic improvement through sport.
The event welcomed over 150 leaders in the world of sports from around the globe who united to discuss the four main topics of this year’s forum: engaging youth, innovation and creativity, empowering people, and the role of sport in the Middle East and North Africa. In total, the forum brought together over 1800 participants and more than 200 media members from all over the world.
Action Qatar worked up great local media attention and enthusiasm surrounding the event, attracting key members of the press to the occasion, and generating great coverage in both local and international publications.
