About

The third annual Sporting Chance Forum brings together 250 high-level delegates from a broad range of stakeholders to drive progress toward a world of sport that fully respects human rights. 

Representatives of affected groups, sports bodies, governments, trade unions, sponsors, NGOs, broadcasters, NHRIs, 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 this year by the new Centre for Sport and Human Rights, UNESCO and Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB), the Forum will cover a diversity of geographies and issues including a special spotlight on survivors of sexual abuse, athletes’ rights, worker safety, fan monitoring, media freedom, child rights, and community wellbeing.
