Doha Goals

Doha and Los Angeles, 2012-2015

RA&A conceptualized, implemented and managed the world’s premier platform for driving global social and economic change through sport – Doha GOALS (Gathering of All Leaders in Sport) for three editions in Doha and one in Los Angeles alongside the Special Olympics, which included a partnership with the SO Youth Program that brought the best stories onstage through the Youth Pitch Closing Ceremony. Held annually, Doha GOALS facilitates sport-related partnerships that build bridges across cultures and geographies and has resulted in a roadmap for social improvement through sport and the launch of cross-border initiatives. The forum has been created under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar.
