Kely Nascimento: Building a More Equitable Planet through Sports, the Arts, and Storytelling
Kely: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! The personal challenge for me is always that there is so much need in the world that it is difficult to not be able to help everyone. Raising money is also always a challenge. The focus of our work is on two elements of the world of sports: “sports for development,” which is sports used as a tool to address the world's greatest needs and further the UN Social Development Goals (SDGs), and “sports diplomacy,” which means—as an individual, a brand, an organization, a culture, a nation—how do you use sport to tell your story? How does your involvement in sport tell us about what you believe? These are areas that are incredibly powerful in sustainable development and storytelling, but they also are areas that are still not commonly understood.

Caroline: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! Traditional, animal-derived food products are highly desirable to most of the world population. Did you know that, in 2020 alone, 574 million metric tons (the weight of or 50,000 Eiffel Towers) of meat, fish, dairy, and eggs were consumed?

Juan Elias Chebly: "Give Me 5" for the SDGs
Juan: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! The UN World Food Programme estimates that 345 million people—of which 160 million are estimated to be children—are now facing acute food insecurity in 82 countries. That’s up from 135 million in 2020. In 2022, we aim to reach 152 million people. However, our confirmed contributions currently stand at just 36 percent of what is needed. Unfortunately, the WFP’s funding gap has never been so wide. We are working hard with governments and International Financing Institutions to ensure we can help bridge this gap. We want solutions to be scaled to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
