#weplayfair - Make Amateur Sport Tolerant by Eliminating Racism and Discrimination
How to address the issue of violence, racism, discrimination and intolerance in sport and, more specifically, in amateur sport? Through the MATCH-SPORT project, local authorities and sport organisations work together on reducing violence, discriminations, racism and intolerance in sport through the exchange of expertise and practices.
Within the MATCH-project, an online communication campaign has been designed and will be broadcast on social media during the European Week of Sport, from 23 to 30 September 2020.
#weplayfair features a range of posters aimed at raising awareness on discrimination and violence in sport and promoting the actions carried out as part of the project. The campaign is mainly aimed at field actors – sports professionals, amateur clubs, anti-discrimination associations – but also target the public at large and local authorities.
It seeks to fight all forms of discrimination in all sports disciplines and is based on the key issues identified by the project partners: the values conveyed through sport, the fight against stereotypes and violence, sport as a unifying force, and the central role of parents.
The campaign is accompanied by two webconferences:
- How to deal with violent incidents between spectators and players in amateur sport? (French session)
