We are happy to announce that “Creating safe environments to build cohesive communities”, the eleventh event in the Mission 2030 workshop series, will take place on July 4, 2023, 13:00 – 15:00 (UTC+2/CEST). Register now and secure your place!
Creating safe environments where people can come together and build cohesive communities is a key goal of societies around the world. According to the UNHCR, in 2021, 89.3 million people were forcibly displaced “as a result of persecution, conflict, violence, human rights violations or other events disturbing public order”. This has led to an increase in xenophobia, discrimination and intolerance, especially towards refugees, migrants and other marginalized groups. Sport for All has a role to play in reducing these problems; after all, a safe environment is a prerequisite for playing sports. In addition, the situation calls for further efforts to promote mutual understanding and tolerance, and sport for all can contribute to this endeavour.
At its core, the Sport for All Movement aims to provide equal opportunities for everyone to participate in physical activity, regardless of their background or ability. In addition to the physical benefits, Sport for All can bring people together and promote peace and development by crossing borders. In today’s world, which at times seems fragmented and fragmented, creating a safe environment is essential to building cohesive communities where mutual understanding and tolerance flourish.
The workshop aims to explore ways to use sport for all as a powerful tool to promote peace, encourage community building and support conflict prevention. Our panel of expert speakers will share their insights and experiences on how sport for all can be used to create the conditions for building a safe environment. Our panel of leaders from all sectors of Sport for All and Development will inspire action and encourage participants to think about how they can use sport to make a positive impact in their own community.
Stay tuned as the full programme, including the lineup of speakers, will be announced soon.
