International Conferences Sport and Diversity

From 1 to 3 August 2018

From Wednesday 1 August to Friday 3 August 2018, we offer with Paris 2018 a cycle of international academic conferences (in French and English) about sport and diversity to fight discriminations.

The three days punctuated by workshops will be held at the Salons of City Hall of Paris. They will bring researchers (sociologists, doctors, specialists), activists and practitioners as well as representatives of public institutions and the Olympic or national sports movement. Among participants are the French Union of Secular Works of Physical Education (UFOLEP), The French LGBT Sport Federation, Sport for all Federation, Inter-LGBT, National Antidoping Agency etc.

The three days will be used to validate a text of conclusions published under the name of “Call of PARIS 2018 for sport for all“. These findings include 18 specific proposals made public Saturday 11 August 2018 during the GAY GAMES 10 closing ceremony. It will be a legacy of GAY GAMES 10 for the benefit of the whole sports movement.

3 Days of conferences :

August, 1, 2018 – Sport, a tool to combat discrimination

August 2, 2018 – Sport as a source of well-being and health

August 3, 2018 – Sport, lever of accessibility and equality
