Guy Ryder, ILO Director General, Opens the 2019 Sporting Chance Forum

The Sporting Chance Forum, held on 21st and 22nd November in Geneva in the historic Room XX of the UN Palais des Nations, serves as a powerful opportunity to discuss the key human rights issues, and their solutions, that exist across the world of sport. 

Hosted by The Centre for Sport and Human Rights, International Labour Organization, Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and UN Office in Geneva, the programme explored how different actors in the world of sport can use their individual and collective leverage to achieve a world of sport that fully respects human rights. 

Guy Ryder, Director General of the ILO, opened the Forum by video alongside the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Deputy Secretary-General of the OECD, a former international footballer and human rights advocate Craig Foster.
