As a tribute to the inaugural United Nations International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, 6th April 2014, TAFISA publicly released its Reach Out Program.


Reaching Out to Developing Sport for All Movements Globally


The TAFISA Reach Out program, developed with the support of the IOC, aims to build awareness, cooperation and strategic development of local and national Sport for All movements, particularly less developed countries. The TAFISA Reach Out Program will create synergy between governors and practitioners of Sport for All delivery, to enable communities and citizens around the world to benefit from the myriad benefits that Sport for All can bring.


In the words of Mr. Wilfried Lemke, Special Advisor to the UN Secretary General on Sport for Development and Peace, sport “has the capacity to empower individuals and bring one’s moral values to the forefront” and “can play a strategic role in transferring life skills and communicating useful and encouraging messages on important issues, thus driving social change.” The TAFISA Reach Out program will help bring this positive change to our member nations around the world.

On the 6th and 7th of March 2014, Ministries of the World attended the Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport (CIGEPS) Plenary Session held in UNESCO headquarters in Paris. Learn more.

Organised every two years as part of UNESCO activities, the CIGEPS Plenary session was the occasion for the 18 elected members of the committee to review the status of international cooperation in the field of sport and physical education, follow up the outcomes of the MINEPS V Conference held in Berlin last June, update current programmes and decide on the directions to take for the coming two years.

TAFISA, as a member of its Permanent Consultative Council, took the opportunity to attend this meeting and underlined the importance of creating early positive experiences and integrate physical activity into the daily lives of people in order to increase participation in Sport for All and physical activity.

The CIGEPS plenary session was also the chance for TAFISA, which has a long standing partnership with UNESCO in this area, to once again put forward Traditional Sports and Games as key solutions to achieve the above objectives.
