Source: DOSB On November 25, 2020, the winner of the DOSB association competition “Strong networks against violence” will be honored.
Violence has many faces and it affects girls and women in particular. In the Corona crisis, social contacts are restricted, conflicts and domestic violence increase. We want to use the possibilities of sport to attract attention and support those affected. Therefore, the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) calls for strong networks against violence to be established together with its 90,000 clubs and other actors. To this end, the DOSB, with the support of the Federal Ministry for Family, Seniors, Women and Youth, announced the club competition “Strong networks against violence” for the fifth time. It honors examples of particularly successful cooperation in the fight against violence at local and regional level. This includes cooperation in the context of public relations (e.g. jointly created information material, joint press work, etc.), long-term concepts that work to raise awareness and remove taboos on the topic (e.g. participation in “round tables against violence”) or actions aimed at prevention – and provide advice on site (e.g. a common day of action) .DOSB Vice President Petra Tzschoppe emphasizes that sport in particular can also offer protection from violence: “With sporting activity, fears can be reduced and the certainty of one’s own abilities can be strengthened. Sport in clubs can give children, young people and adults self-confidence and also enable them to trust others. Fundamental for this is a climate of mutual respect and appreciation as well as a culture of perception. In such a climate, attention and sensitivity can flourish in the cooperation of the association in order to help those affected by violence in the family context, through a social environment with people to whom they can confide and who provide help. Associations can also exercise a protective function in this sense. ”This year’s award ceremony will take place on November 25, 2020 from 2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. in digital format via the Zoom network platform @ remove-this.dosb.de to register for the award ceremony.
