The Ovie Mughelli Foundation addresses the world’s sustainability and STEM crisis by convening thought leaders for solutions and developing technology, programs, and curriculum that educate and train a pipeline of diverse individuals to become STEM professionals and a generation of eco-conscious citizens globally.
We leverage our partners’ global platform, reach, and unified mission to maximize exposure and create awareness of environmental actions and their impact on the world. The foundation’s five signature initiatives use the popularity and fun of sports, entertainment, and technology to educate youth about the UN Sustainable Development Goals, inspiring them to take action. Ovie places particular focus on reaching vulnerable underserved communities since they are disproportionately affected by climate change issues, yet tend to be the least informed about the risks.

This one and a half day Football and Eco-Education camp will teach students high level football drills alongside professional trainers and former NFL players. Additionally, participants will go through a “round robin” session of environmental workshops, ROR activities and “game show’ activities all to test their “eco-knowledge”.
Recycle on the Run is an obstacle course that blends the physical activity of football along with key environmental concepts or “brain teasers”. Participants have their football skills tested while also testing their “green IQ” by answering questions and hitting football targets that enter our landfill.
