This year, the world celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a monumental document which established the laws and principles related to the equality of all individuals and their inalienable right to dignity. Sport is one of the best ambassadors to promote human rights and the inclusion of all. Through sport, people learn values that cross gender, creed, nationality, age, economic position and even physical condition. This session will highlight the special relationship between sport and human rights and explore how sport and its values can be used to promote human rights for all.
