TenCate Field in a box™ for community empowerment and sustainable development

In numerous places in the world opportunities are lacking for young people to play sports, to attend education and to develop socially. The TenCate Field in a box™ system from TenCate Grass connects sports with social, educational and economic objectives. TenCate Field in a box™ enables full use to be made of sports as a means of personal growth, social cohesion and a sense of community.

The integrated system also corresponds to the UN’s 17 global goals for sustainable development. Following the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) formulated in 2000, on 25 September 2015 the United Nations drew up the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The eight MDGs – which range from halving extreme poverty rates to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education – formed a blueprint agreed to by all the world’s countries and leading development institutions. Achieving the new seventeen Sustainable Development Goals should lead to the world being free of poverty, hunger and disease by 2030 and solutions being found for problems relating to water, sanitation, climate and energy. TenCate Field in a box™ enables TenCate to respond to these 17 global goals.
