Article 6: UNESCO Global Sports Conference – MINEPS VII: Charting the Future of Sport for Development

The 7th International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport, known as MINEPS VII, has recently wrapped up in Baku, Azerbaijan, making it a truly memorable event. A global gathering of governments, athletes, private sector representatives, and stakeholders from June 26 to 29, 2023, marked a milestone in our shared commitment to sport as a force for positive change. It is an honor having our distinguished team member, Dr. Efstathios Christodoulides joining this event.

With an agenda focusing on increased investment in #sport, improved sport practices, and the importance of quality Physical Education, the conference sparked dynamic conversations about how we can leverage sport for health, societal growth, and economic development. The power of sport to unite, inspire, and drive progress was vividly on display! The highlight of MINEPS VII was the launch of the Fit for Life Alliance, a pioneering initiative that promises to redefine the sport-for-development ecosystem. It is inspiring to see global sport ministers and stakeholders rally behind a shared vision for a future where sport is recognized not just as a pastime, but as a powerful catalyst for development and progress. As we reflect on the insights and partnerships fostered at MINEPS VII, we are excited about what lies ahead.
