Sporting Chance Forum 2018

12 December 2018 UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, France

The third annual Sporting Chance Forum brings together 300+ high-level delegates from a broad range of stakeholders to drive progress towards a world of sport that fully respects human rights. 

Representatives of affected groups, governments, sports bodies, trade unions, sponsors, NGOs, broadcasters, National Human Rights Institutions, and intergovernmental organisations will gather in Paris at UNESCO, the UN’s lead agency for Physical Education and Sport, under the backdrop of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Hosted by the new Centre for Sport and Human Rights in partnership with UNESCO and IHRB, this year's Forum will cover a diversity of geographies and issues including child safeguarding, athletes’ rights, worker safety, fan monitoring, media freedom, and community wellbeing.

The event is by invitation only, and more information can be found on the Centre for Sport and Human Rights website.
