Adam Fraser: Sports and Their Power to Change the World

Adam Fraser: Sports and Their Power to Change the World
Adam: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Laureus Sport for Good Foundation uses sport to change the world for the better. That could be using boxing in Brazil to get kids out of gangs, basketball in Brooklyn to help kids stay in school, or surfing in South Africa to help young people with their mental health. We are lucky enough to work with many of the world's greatest athletes to achieve those goals, including Chris Paul in the NBA and the tennis star Naomi Osaka. We work with many more as well. They all believe sport has the power to change the world.

Jeffrey Prosserman: Charging Forward for Climate Action at Voltpost
Jeffrey Prosserman: Gas cars and trucks are making our world hotter and air dirtier. Everyone must switch from gas to electric transportation for our planet to stay safe and healthy. Many people want to make this change, but they are worried about where to charge cars. We started Voltpost to provide everyone with easy and affordable electric vehicle charging access. We do this by transforming lampposts into electric vehicle chargers. Our goal is to get more electric vehicles on the road, so we can help our shared home.

Lisa: Happy to be with you, Spiffy! Create2030 is an artist-led, international network of professional artists and storytellers committed to using our voices and talents in support of the United Nations' (UN) 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). We believe our voices and talents can create a more just, inclusive, and sustainable world. The main challenge we face is to be seen as legitimate partners in SDG advocacy—not just as entertainers, but also as creative thinkers and problem-solvers with a right to have a seat at the decision-making table.
