First Safe Sport International conference
April 2018 – Madrid, Spain
The first Safe Sport International conference was held in April 2018, in Madrid Spain, under the theme “Challenging Violence in Sport”.
For the conference presenters, it was the first time the scientific and sports communities as well as statutory organizations working in the sporting environment joined together to eliminate violence in sports. For two days, they shared their experiences in order to coordinate an approach targeting a common goal: eliminate all types of violence in sports.
During this first Safe Sport International conference in 2018, guest speakers from more than 10 countries and representing 6 of the 7 continents and more than 20 different countries met in Madrid.
Supported by the Supreme Council for Sport in Spain and presented at the Polytechnical University of Madrid, this conference allowed two Canadian researchers, Sylvie Parent (Université Laval) and Gretchen Kerr (University of Toronto), both recognized as international experts on the problem of violence in a sporting environment, to speak and present their respective work.
