Register now for the 4th IOC World Conference on Women and Sport!
Today the IOC has launched the registration for the 4th IOC World Conference on Women and Sport. With Jordan as host for this event, the Conference will be held in the Middle East for the first time. How to best use “Sport as a vehicle for social change” will be discussed by the hundreds of expected participants from all over the world from 8-10 March at the Dead Sea. Every four years, the IOC organises a world conference on women and sport, where the primary objective is to analyse the progress made in this field within the Olympic Movement and to define a prioritised line of action to improve and increase the participation of women in sport.
Platform for collaboration
Under the patronage of Their Majesties, King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and jointly organised by the IOC and the NOC of Jordan, the Conference will be an excellent platform to exchange expertise and best practice as well as collaborate for future action around the 2008 motto. The event’s multi-stakeholder character, with participants from the Olympic Movement, universities, NGOs and other expert institutions, will stimulate the discussions and outcomes. Moreover the event will give an opportunity to evaluate the implementation of the recommendations of the 3rd World Conference, which was organised in Marrakech in 2004 and brought together more than 600 delegates and observers from 137 countries around the principal theme “New Strategies, New Commitments”.
