Workshop: Sport for Violence Prevention

Workshop: Sport for Violence Prevention

Join the GIZ S4D Learning Lab for a three-day workshop on how sport can be used in the context of violence prevention.


Wed, 01/26/2022 to Fri, 01/28/2022

Sport can play a supporting role in violence prevention. It can help to reduce tension and mitigate conflict by providing a neutral and peaceful space in which to engage with others. Even target groups that are difficult to reach, such as former perpetrators, can be re-integrated into society through sport.

In particular, this workshop will discuss how sport can contribute to SDG 16 and how sport sessions can be used to convey competences/skills with the focus on violence prevention.

Participants will have the opportunity to gain knowledge on existing resources and how to implement S4D with the focus on violence prevention in their own working context.

Participation in the web-seminar “Introduction to S4D” or prior knowledge of S4D are required for this course.

The workshop will take place with a minimum of 10 participants.

Date: 26 - 28 January 2022
Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm (UTC+1)
Speakers: Experts GSU

Please note this is a 3-day workshop.
