Safe Sport International Online Conference

Safe Sport International Online Conference

This year's theme is all about placing the athletes' voices at the centre of sport safeguarding.


Thu, 03/11/2021 to Fri, 03/12/2021

Turning the safeguarding debate on its head, this conference will focus on the needs, priorities and athletes’ safeguarding perspectives. Athletes will share their own first-hand views. Each session will include two athlete respondents (some with lived experience of violence in sport), who reflect on the data presented.

The conference opens with a keynote speaker and four-member panel on Thursday, 11 March, covering research, human and child rights, and athlete, community and state advocacy.  Friday, 12 March, will see 6 interdisciplinary sessions cover a range of themes, including athlete and coach communication, athlete-centred approaches to justice, and independent interventions. A final panel will discuss “Where do we go from here?"
