Fair Play: Exploring the Interaction Between Sport, Social Justice and Human Rights

The Edmund Rice Centre for Justice and Community Education continues to promote ways to encourage young people to become advocates and to work for justice. 'Australia is a nation that is inherently passionate about sport’ (The Starting Line by No2ndPlace, 2023) and our young people are connected more than most. 82% of Australians believe that sport can make important societal change (The Starting Line).

This is a complementary program to the ‘Justice Through the Arts Program’ and focuses on the role of sport in making positive change for the world, which is more evident than ever. The theme of HOPE will be featured during this event.
