Are you ready for the future of responsible sport?

The Sporting Chance Forum (#SCF23) is finally back in-person. On 5 and 6 December, SCF23 will bring all actors in the sport ecosystem together at the Palais des Nations in Geneva to discuss the future of sport and human rights.

Are you ready for the future of responsible sport?

SCF23 coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 5th anniversary of the Centre for Sport and Human Rights. We are happy to announce that SCF23 is officially part of the United Nations Human Rights 75, a year-long initiative to commemorate UDHR’s anniversary.

By the end of the year, the UN Human Rights Office will announce global pledges that renew the world’s commitment to and vision for the future of human rights. Sport has much to offer to this conversation. SCF23 will explore innovative strategies and new forms of collective action to advance respect for human rights across the world of sport. As a contribution to the Human Rights 75 initiative, SCF23 will make pledges that will help shape the coming decades of responsible sport.

In 2025, at the next Sporting Chance Forum, we will revisit those pledges, share lessons learned and leverage best practices.



Over two days, SCF23 will feature in-depth discussions on global trends in sport and human rights. These sessions will help participants:
