About RESPONSIBALL

RESPONSIBALL Forum

WHAT WE STAND FOR

RESPONSIBALL has two main goals at the heart of its mission: To showcase good practice in governance, community development and environmental stewardship; and to support a community of practitioners who want to connect with others, share good practices, compare and progress.

OUR BACKGROUND

RESPONSIBALL is an initiative that is managed by SchweryCade, an independent social entrepreneurship. Over the past seven years, an annual RESPONSIBALL Ranking has been published. Researchers compile information regarding football clubs in each of the chosen leagues, after which league averages are communicated through the report.

THE FORUM

The objectives of the RESPONSIBALL Forum are to bring key stakeholders together, discuss the main challenges involved in using the social value of sport to aid refugees, to promote good practice sharing, and to define future cooperation.

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.
