Are you ready for the future of responsible sport?
The Sporting Chance Forum (SCF23) is back in-person. On 5 and 6 December, SCF23 will bring all actors in the sport ecosystem together at the Palais des Nations in Geneva to discuss the future of sport and human rights.
SCF23 coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the 5th anniversary of the Centre for Sport and Human Rights (CSHR). SCF23 is officially part of the United Nations Human Rights 75, a year-long initiative to commemorate UDHR's anniversary.
SCF23 will explore innovative strategies and new forms of collective action to advance respect for human rights across the world of sport. As a contribution to the Human Rights 75 initiative, SCF23 will make pledges that will help shape the coming decades of responsible sport.
The Sporting Chance Forum is organised by the Centre for Sport and Human Rights and co-hosted with the International Labour Organization, the UN Human Rights Office, the United Nations Office at Geneva, the Government of Switzerland and is supported by Open Society Foundations.
CSHR CEO Mary Harvey said: We are looking forward to welcoming stakeholders from all parts of the sport ecosystem to Geneva for the Sporting Chance Forum. We have an amazing array of speakers covering such critical topics as transformational leadership, racial injustice, women’s sport and remedying abuse - and look out for our very special guest on the 5th December.
The Centre for Sport and Human Rights is supporting the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with 'The 75' campaign. In the 75 days leading up to International Human Rights Day, CSHR, together with the UN Human Rights Office, is publishing 75 social media videos from athletes who have spoken out on social issues and human rights, or have demonstrated in other ways their commitment to human rights - through their foundations, NGOs, or support for UN causes.
