TRUST project virtual conference

On International Human Rights Day, join a virtual conference for the launch the TRUST project.


Fri, 12/10/2021

WHEN: 10 December, 3pm - 6.30pm CEST

TRUST has been formed to promote ‘sport as it should be,’ in response to the UNESCO Chair responsibilities around the inclusive policy actions of the Kazan Action Plan that emerged from the 6th World Conference of Sports Ministers (MINEPS VI). TRUST aligns with the Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education.

With funding from the Democratic and Inclusive School Culture in Operation (DISCO) program of the EU and Council of Europe, the UNESCO Chair, the GAA, the Portuguese Olympic Committee and Refugee Team Netherlands, we have launched TRUST, an online education module for use in universities, schools, colleges, clubs and the wider community.

The TRUST – Rights Understanding in Sport Toolkit aims to bridge the gap between human rights and sport. The educational tool provides resources for teaching human rights in and through sport and for embracing a human rights approach to sport education. It includes theoretical and practical resources, including for the practical delivery of games and activities to will help foster effective rights-based sport education and delivery practices. The online learning platform and multi-media resources would be of interest to sports stakeholders from sports coaches & trainers, PE teachers, 3rd level educators, club administrators, volunteers and sports policy developers.

TRUST also delivers advocacy and audio-visual materials to help raise awareness of the role that sport can play in promoting these rights, particularly when addressing the needs of all in sport including marginalised groups.

Join this virtual conference to learn more about the toolkit and the TRUST project. Partners from Ireland, Portugal and the Netherlands will join guests and funders, the Council of Europe and the European Union, in launching the resources on International Day of Human Rights from the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) headquarters in Croke Park in Ireland.
