Scort advocates for the transformative power of sport in contexts such as crisis, forced displacement, social marginalisation, and the online realm. 

Through the knowledge acquired and extensive networks, Scort mobilises organisations and individuals within and beyond the sport ecosystem to improve the lives of vulnerable populations.

Education and Peacebuilding through Sport in Refugee Context


Since 2021, Scort has been leading the Sport for Refugees Coalition as a co-convener, together with UNHCR and the Olympic Refuge Foundation, and contributes to its strategic and operational development. As a co-convener, Scort ensures the exchange between Coalition members to share and learn from good practices, as well as the collection of evidence to inform joint communication and advocacy efforts.

In light of the UNHCR Global Refugee Forum 2023, Scort contributed to the design and promotion of the Joint Pledge on Sport for Inclusion and Protection, ensuring a shared commitment among over 140 stakeholders to empower people seeking protection through sport.

Online Safety and Child Protection in Sport


Since the establishment of the strategic partnership in 2020, Scort and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) have been raising awareness among sports organisations about online risks and promoting safe digital media use. In 2022, recommendations were developed to support sports organisations in integrating online safety into their protection concepts and providing a safe space for children in sports.
