Laureus Sport for Good Statement 

Our Vision: We use the power of sport to end violence, discrimination and inequality for children, young

people and their communities. We prove that sport can change the world.  

Our Mission: We fund, support and develop and implement programmes and initiatives that use sport to

create equality, access and opportunity. 


Our commitment to Safeguarding: 

As a key player in the sport for development field Laureus Sport for Good funds and supports a global network

of community-based sports projects impacting the lives of children, young people and vulnerable adults. The

key beneficiaries of sport for good are children, young people and vulnerable adults. Hence it is imperative

that robust policies and procedures are in place to ensure that Laureus Sport for Good manages and mitigates

risks in relation to the safeguarding and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults around

the globe. Laureus Sport for Good recognises that the welfare and interests of all participants in programmes

and activities supported and endorsed by Laureus Sport for Good are paramount in all circumstances. As part

of this recognition,

Laureus Sport for Good has taken the pledge in favour of the International Safeguards for Children in Sport:

We are committed to working towards safer sport for children, young people and vulnerable adults. To

support this, we will promote and advocate for safeguards through our networks and commit to embedding

them in our work. 

Our commitment stretches to also include young people and vulnerable adults. 

As part of this commitment, and if your application is approved, Laureus will expect you to join us in this

effort by signing our Safeguarding Policy upon signature of the Grant Agreement, following its guidelines

and recommendations.  You can find our Safeguarding Policy here:

Our commitment to Environment: 

According to the United Nations, climate change is the defining issue of our time, and we are at a

defining moment. Evidence of climate change is already apparent in the hotter global mean temperature,

rising sea level, warming ocean (which is making storm activity, such as hurricanes and typhoons, more

frequent and severe), extended droughts, wildfire activity, and more. 

The scientific community reached a near consensus on human-induced climate change in the early 2000s, and

the consensus has grown since. 

In recognition of the urgency and importance of addressing climate change across all sectors, Laureus

has committed to doing its part, and has signed on to the UN Framework Convention on Climate

Change’s (UNFCCC) Sport for Climate Action Framework. This framework includes five principles:  

  1. Undertake systematic efforts to promote greater environmental responsibility 
  2. Reduce overall climate impact 
  3. Educate for climate action 
  4. Promote sustainable and responsible consumption 
  5. Advocate for climate action through communication 

As part of this commitment, and if your application is approved, Laureus will expect you to join us in this

effort by signing this Framework upon signature of a Grant Agreement and following its guidelines

and recommendations.

Our commitment to Gender Equality and Gender Justice: 

  • We believe in gender equality, and we believe that all our programmes and grants, research and influencing work should be designed and implemented in a way to promote gender equality. 
  • Our vision for gender equality is one where women and men, girls, and boys, as well as non-binary children and young people, have equal access to opportunities and are equally empowered to engage with them and to become champions of and have power over their own lives.  
  • For this to happen and recognising the engendered power structures that currently hold women and girls in disenfranchisement, we wish to strengthen our efforts at empowering young women and girls by changing attitudes, ideas, and beliefs about gender relations, increasing young women and girls’ engagement with the programmes we support, and supporting them to become leaders in their communities, influencing the conditions of their lives on equal terms. 
  • Gender mainstreaming is one of the two strategies we use to promote gender equality, the other being the Social Focus Area “Gender Equity”. We will mainstream gender concerns to ensure that all
  • our work across all social focus areas contributes to gender equality.  
  • As part of this commitment, we expect any application for funding to clearly reflect the following minimum requirements: 

  1. That women and men, girls and boys, as well as children and young people who self-identify outside of the gender-binary, are consulted and their different needs and perspectives considered at all stages of the programme and grant cycle.
  2. That they can equally and equitably participate in and benefit from Laureus supported programmesThat the programme does not harm or exclude women and girls, neither child nor young people who self-identify outside of the gender-binary 
  3. That they help to redress existing gender imbalances and injustice when possible
