Child Rights and Mega-Sport Events Toolkit

The Centre for Sport and Human Rights, the Office of the Special Representative of the UN Secretary General on Violence Against Children, and UNICEF have led the development of the Child Rights and Mega-Sporting Events Toolkit (the “Toolkit”) to bring together decades of experience and knowledge on these issues.

The Toolkit provides a set of resources to help benchmark, monitor and evaluate the extent to which entities involved with the organising of an MSE are addressing their responsibility towards the rights and well-being of children across the lifecycle of the event — from the initial bidding phase through legacy. It proposes a number of Core Elements, based on international rights law, for ensuring MSEs are planned and delivered in a child-friendly manner.
