FundLife Founder, Marko Kasic attended SIGEF 2019 in Tokyo, Japan on September 18-19 to share the work of FundLife during the Sport for Good Session.

​​Speaking alongside leaders from the Sports Sector, Marko shared FundLife’s involvement with Common Goal, a football-led global philanthropic movement where players, managers and football clubs pledge to donate 1% of their wages to community organizations using sport for social change.

The gathering bought together leaders from business, politics and civil society to discuss how as a collective, we are able to solve pressing global problems and achieve the UN SDGs.

During his presentation, Marko shared a video of Japan football player, Shinji Kagawa, as he visited FundLife supported communities in Tacloban, Philippines. Mr. Kagawa is a member of Common Goal and has pledged 1% of his salary to organizations that are using sports as a force for social good.

For more details on SIGEF, please read below;

The path to fostering a better future for all implies the search for urgent appropriate solutions to the greatest challenges that humanity has faced since the beginning of time: namely, social inclusion and sustainability. And that path inevitably goes through designing a smarter future for all.

This is the stance of SIGEF, a leading world forum on social innovation and global ethics, and the reason why "Together Shaping a Smarter Future" is the theme of its sixth edition. Its purpose is to promote private, public and citizen endeavours, in all areas of socio-economic activity, toward designing, developing and implementing smart environments, innovative solutions and devices that lead to that hopeful end.

The exploration and promotion of smart solutions has thus logically led Horyou, the Social Network for Social Good and Horyou Foundation organizers of SIGEF2019, to pick Tokyo, Japan, home of Smart-Tech if ever there was one, to be its venue.

In that respect, SIGEF2019 is set to tackle some of the most critical contemporary issues in plenary sessions dedicated to Artificial Intelligence, FinTech, Sustainable Lifestyle, Health Technologies, Smart Technology and Smart Cities, Sports for Good, Renewable Future Energy and Opening New Roads for Sustainability. Inspiring stakeholders, including world experts will share their most effective experiences and visions with a global online, offline and on the spot audience, while solutions will be proposed and strategies will be deliberated.

SIGEF2019 was held on September 19 at the Tokyo Prince Hotel, after an opening reception conducted at the Swiss Residence of the Ambassador, on September 18. It will entail the active participation of an international array of government authorities, business executives, international organization representatives and academia, as well as representatives of civil society and a number of experts and proponents of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
