La GIZ (Agence allemande de coopération internationale) a réalisé ce manuel ayant pour principal thème l’éducation civique à travers le sport dans le cadre du projet ProSport et grâce au concours de nombreux organismes locaux afin de considérer les besoins et connaissances existants au Togo.

Le projet ProSport de la GIZ cherche à promouvoir le sport comme un outil pour l’épanouissement de la jeunesse, tout en favorisant l’adoption d’un mode de vie sain et par conséquent, le développement des capacités locales. ProSport offre à la fois la formation et le développement professionnel d’entraineuses et d’entraineurs sportifs et d’autres acteurs importants qui peuvent mettre en œuvre des programmes et élaborer des stratégies durables mais aussi la rénovation ou la construction des infrastructures sportives mises à la disposition des collectivités.

Le présent document intitulé « Le sport au service du civisme et de la bonne citoyenneté » donne des outils aux éducatrices et aux éducateurs sportifs, aux animatrices et aux animateurs de jeunesse et aux entraineuses et aux entraineurs togolaises et togolais, afin de transmettre des valeurs éducatives aux jeunes qu’ils accompagnent ou encadrent.

Ce manuel contribue de manière significative à l’initiative « Place au Sport – 1000 chances pour l’Afrique du BMZ, lancée en 2014. Le but ultime étant de promouvoir la dynamique du sport pour le développement au sein des communes.

La Mega-Sporting Events Platform for Human Rights (MSE Platform) et l'Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) proposent des outils pour garantir un événement conforme aux droits.

Les événements sportifs majeurs représentent l’apogée du sport international, mais ne peuvent être dissociés de de leur impact social significatif, qu'il soit positif ou négatif. Les événements sportifs peuvent améliorer les libertés et célébrer la dignité humaine, mais ils peuvent aussi amplifier les discriminations et les abus. Il est essentiel d'assurer que le monde du sport soit en adéquation avec les Principes directeurs des Nations Unies relatifs aux entreprises et aux droits de l'homme ainsi qu'avec les autres droits humains internationaux et les instruments, principes et normes connexes. 

« Le cycle de vie d’un événement sportif majeur – Intégrer les droits de l’homme, de la vision à l’héritage » présente le cycle de la vie d’un grand événement sportif, avec des éléments spécifiques de bonne pratique en matière de droits humains à chaque étape et que ceux qui sont concernés par l'organisation d'un événement devraient intégrer dans leur programmation, mise en oeuvre et héritage afin de garantir un événement respectueux des droits. 

Le présent guide a été élaboré par le groupe de travail sur les acteurs hôtes de la MSE Platform présidée par Sandra Lendenmann Winterberg (cheffe de la section Politique des droits de l’homme, Département fédéral des affaires étrangères, Suisse) et Ambet Yuson (secrétaire général, Internationale des travailleurs du bâtiment et du bois), avec la contribution des membres du groupe de travail, et sa rédaction a été dirigée par William Rook et Alison Biscoe (IHRB), avec le soutien de Lucy Amis (chercheuse associée à l’IHRB).

Basketball inspires youth to speak out on the island of Aruba

Miami-based NGO CourtVision International and Aruba's Stealers Basketball youth organisation teamed-up last week to use sports to encourage dialogue and empower youth leadership on the Caribbean island of Aruba.

Think about it like this,” starts Anselmo Matthew, president of the Aruban youth sports organisation Stealers Basketball. “Imagine being in line at a store and looking up to see the clerk behind the counter ignoring all the customers in line.  You watch and wait as the line grows, and you see that the workers behind the counter are talking on their cell phones, checking their email, refusing to wait on customers in a timely manner.

Finally, you have had enough. Bolstered by the murmurs and whispered complaints you hear from the other customers around you, you work up the nerve to say something -- to stand up against this terrible customer service. You walk up to the counter and you exclaim, ‘Hey, what’s going on? We are paying customers! We deserve better treatment!’  

But as you turn around, expecting to see other customers join in your protest, you watch in surprise as the rest of the people in line avert their eyes and shuffle away from you in fear or  embarrassment. You suddenly realise that no one has your back.

And now, standing alone, instead of being the courageous voice speaking out on behalf of your peers, you have become a single, solitary troublemaker, whose insolence the store owners easily silence as they usher you back into line.

That is what it often feels like to be a young person on this island. You may have an idea. You may have the courage to speak out to the powers that be. But many times, due to fear or embarrassment generated by adults or society itself, you often find yourself being treated like the  single, solitary troublemaker who just won’t get in line. And your voice is easily silenced."

Last week, the Miami-based NGO CourtVision International teamed up with Stealers Basketball organisation in the city of San Nicolas, Aruba to host a sports-based youth empowerment workshop.  The workshop was designed and facilitated by CourtVision, the NGO accelerator that trains and designs conflict transformation sports programs with youth organisations all over the world. 

Over three full days, thirty-three boys and girls from San Nicolas, ages 6-17, were challenged to overcome their fear of speaking out, work together, and use their collective voice on issues that affect them. They developed conflict resolution and public speaking skills and learned to negotiate rules of gameplay with other youth competitors and adults. Many of the challenges were new for students, and they seemed hesitant at first to speak out in the simulated negotiations with adults.

But as their skills increased, their confidence grew, and by the end of the week, students and adults alike were engaging in full-fledged discussions on topics that transcend the basketball court--such as the legal protections for children, the enhancement of women’s participation in government, and democratic elections. “We learned a lot about how to be calm and decide between two options when each of us want different things,” said one participant, Andre.  Another participant, Chantal, said that “creating the rules was hard at first because we kept arguing. But with the guidance of the coaches, we realised we could do it if we worked together.”

President of the Aruban Basketball Federation Geraldo Milton was excited to observe the culture created by the dialogues between students and the adults.  “I was very proud of our students,” Milton said. “They showed up to this workshop during their spring break from school.  They took care of each other and shared their ideas. The bigger students showed their ability to mentor and take care of the younger ones.  I’m very happy about the effect this workshop will have on our organisation and the culture of youth development in our community.  We look forward to future involvement with CourtVision International!

Germany and Turkey receive bid requirements for hosting UEFA EURO 2024

The countries bidding to host EURO 2024 must fulfil specific criteria relating to the respect of human rights.

Following the submission of declarations of interest to bid to host UEFA EURO 2024, representatives of the German Football Association (DFB) and the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) both attended a bid opening workshop, which took place last Thursday at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

The two bidders were given information of the bidding procedure, and received detailed explanations about the bid requirements, as well as the conditions that the host association must fulfil to be eligible to host the UEFA EURO 2024 final tournament. These requirements set out the information and materials that bidders must provide in the bid procedure, and guide them in the preparation of their bid dossiers.

For the first time ever, these bid requirements contain specific criteria relating to the respect of human rights. These criteria are based on the United Nations’ “Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights” and other UN conventions and were developed in close cooperation with Sport and Rights Alliance. Furthermore, criteria regarding compliance and anticorruption measures have also been included as requirements.

Commenting on this important milestone, UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin, said:

The protection of human rights and labour rights is of the utmost importance for UEFA. It was imperative for us to introduce specific articles on the respect and protection of human rights in the bidding requirements for all of our competitions. From now on, bidding nations will have to adhere strictly to these articles in the framework of the organisation of all our tournaments and finals."  

Both the DFB and the TFF will have until 27 April 2018 to complete and submit their bid dossiers to UEFA. The UEFA Executive Committee will decide on who has won the right to host UEFA EURO 2024 in September 2018.

The full bid requirements for UEFA EURO 2024 can be accessed here and the UEFA EURO 2024 Bid Dossier Template can be accessed here.

Connecting Clubs International launch Cricket for Equality in Biratnagar

Connecting Clubs International have successfully launched their inaugural project, Cricket for Equality, in Biratnagar, Nepal. Working with 200 school children over eight, the project is seeking to tackle gender inequality through cricket.

When leaving London, the Connecting Clubs International (CCI) team and I had little idea of what would be in store for us when we finally reached Biratnagar in eastern Nepal. We had heard about the hospitality of the people of Nepal and of course the passion for cricket, but when we entered our first school we were greeted by an experience none of us will ever forget. Hundreds of school children, ranging from five to 18 running up to us, asking questions, posing for photos, and seeking autographs! We were amazed and humbled at the same time.

CCI, the charity I founded to help tackle social inequality through sport, traveled to Biratnagar in February 2017 to deliver our inaugural development project, Cricket for Equality. We had been working with a group of passionate people from Nepal for around 18 months in order to make our project a success. Our approach from day one was to have the community lead the direction of our work, and that is why we partnered with Abhishek Shrestha of the Nepal Cricket Foundation and Bina Jha, a gender equality expert from Kathmandu. Together our organisations, and our collective passion for making change, ensured that we were delivering the project with our eyes open to the challenges ahead.

Gender in Nepal is topic that requires a knowledge of religion, social class, history and geography; the complexity of gender relations meant that we had to establish a thorough understanding of the context in which we would be working. Our extensive research, coupled with the presence of local experts, meant that our plan to integrate socially progressive gender equality education into a sports programme was given every opportunity to succeed.

Our project was split into three parts: mixed gender cricket training, education workshops, and stakeholder management. We took an evidence-based approach that combined our knowledge of the development issues in Nepal together with analysis completed in the field. These three complementary project phases informed our work and was the structure around which Cricket for Equality was built.

During our school visits, meeting with teachers, coaches and, of course, the kids, we became aware of some of the social issues that reinforced the gender norms that were identified as being central to gender inequality in Nepal. We found that there was a rigid separation of boys and girls and that sport in particular was seen as a place for males alone. Across Biratnagar we noticed variations on this theme and our plan to integrate boys and girls into mixed sessions was driven by our desire to promote cricket as place where both sexes could enjoy sport, speak their minds, and gain confidence.

Together with our local delivery partners we provided a free eight day programme for school children from across Biratnagar, giving them access to English Cricket Board coach Jason Rance, who lead the cricket development aspect of the project. By opening up the eight days to boys and girls we ensured that we were providing an environment in which both sexes were treated equally and given a voice. We used this opportunity to speak with individuals about their experiences of gender relations and how they view gender as a concept.

Our programme also provided gender sensitisation workshops for all of the participants, including the teachers and coaches. Led by the Bina and Nidda Yusuf (representing CCI from one of our funding partners Mott MacDonald) we were able to benchmark the perceptions of gender among a wide variety of people. By coupling our sports development programme with these workshops, we ensured that we were able to get people discussing issues that are often difficult to tackle. Sport acted as the catalyst for a frank and open debate on gender inequality and the root cause of gender violence. We were told, in no uncertain terms, that most of the school children wouldn't have come to a gender equality workshops if it hadn't have been linked to the cricket training we were providing, crystallising the need for innovative engagement techniques.

Cricket for Equality showed the power of sport to tackle social issues. We were able to bring together a community around a sport to tackle an issue that is holding a nation back. Our project was just the start; we will be returning to Biratnagar in October and are making plans to roll out our programme to other parts of Nepal. The stories of the individuals we worked with across the eights days brought home the importance of the issues we were tackling. We heard from girls that were given the confidence, through cricket, to speak about issues that they were experiencing and we heard from boys that began to see girls as equals on the field.

Our programme reached close to 200 school children, plus many teachers and coaches in just eight days. We have set up online groups to keep the momentum going. Jason is delivering coaching by Skype and we are continuing to associate cricket with gender equality for the people of Biratnagar. This was just start, but it was the start of a project that I believe can make a significant impact not only in Biratnagar and Nepal but in countries across the world.
