RESPONSIBALL Forum

Meet like-minded individuals

Speakers and attendees at the forum will come from a variety of different backgrounds, but all have a common interest in the power of sport to aid the integration of refugees. There will be opportunities for you to listen to inspiring stories, learn about the challenges that have been faced, and understand what steps need to be taken to implement specifically-tailored programs. During the breaks, you will have time to connect with like-minded individuals; during the workshops and fireside chat, you will have more opportunity to participate.

Catch up on current good practices involving sport and refugees

A key focus of the forum is the good practices that are currently being done to use sport as a tool to integrate and include refugees into local communities. From Football Associations to the International Olympic Committee, examples from the sports world are numerous. The forum will provide you with an opportunity to hear about these good practices and gain an understanding of how to implement them.


Hear firsthand accounts from experts, practitioners and refugees

Are you trying to implement a refugee program into your sports club? Would you like to know more about the benefits, challenges and outcomes of starting a project? Industry leaders will provide firsthand accounts from the field, giving you greater insight and understanding of why and how you can use sport to bring about impact.

FAQ's

RESPONSIBALL Forum

Why have you chosen to focus on refugees?
As the number of migrants and refugees in Europe continues to increase, building understanding and opportunities for integration and inclusion are important for all involved. Sport has proven to be a valuable tool not only to include refugees and migrants into local communities, but also as a means of building cultural and individual awareness. The overarching theme of refugees and sport will be discussed and examined throughout the day as we look at good practices, new opportunities, and potential challenges.
Attending the forum will not only provide an opportunity for you to learn about the impact and good practices that come from the involvement of refugees in sport, but will also provide you an opportunity to meet with individuals, international sports federations, NGOs, and many more who are focused on using sport to integrate and include refugees into their communities.
The forum will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland. The exact location you find on Google Maps below.
I have a program that works with refugees – can I be a speaker?
That is wonderful that you have a program, and we’d love to hear about it. Speakers have been settled, but that does not mean that you should not come and share. There will be breaks throughout the forum when you will be able to speak with others in attendance, as well as workshops and a fireside chat when we welcome questions and participation. Please email mia.salvemini@responsiball.org with further inquiries and information.

EVENT GUIDE

RESPONSIBALL Forum

  • Refugees in Sport
  • As the number of refugees in Europe continues to increase, building understanding and opportunities for integration and inclusion are important for all involved. Sport has proven to be a valuable tool not only to include refugees into local communities, but also as a means of building cultural and individual awareness. The overarching theme of refugees and sport will be discussed and examined throughout the day as we look at good practices, new opportunities, and potential challenges.

  • Federations and Club Good Practices
  • Many federations and clubs have set programs in place to aid with the integration and inclusion of refugees, as well as the sensitization of the community to the challenges faced by the refugee community. This will be an opportunity to discuss some of the best practices currently run in professional football.

  • Workshops
  • Pending involvement from refugees, this could be an opportunity for participants to meet refugees. Possibility for a “living-library/speed-dating” activity in which participants and refugees will have the opportunity to talk vis-à-vis about their background and experiences.
