Empowering Physical Education and Sport with UNESCO

April 30, 2018

ARISF President and GAISF First Vice President Raffaele Chiulli attended the Permanent Consultative Council (PCC) and the Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport (GIGEPS) at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France.

Mr. Chiulli outlined how “Sport is an extraordinary means to show and disseminate those values such as passion, loyalty and fair competition which are fundamental in our today’s society” and acknowledged this great opportunity to exchange experience, knowledge and ideas with all key stakeholders.

“We are very much interested in learning more about how the Kazan Action Plan (KAP) can be adapted to the sport and facilitate cooperation between governments and the sport movement - Mr. Chiulli said - we need to strengthen the position of sport in the society by taking the responsibility to safeguard its credibility and protect clean athletes by demonstrating good governance, transparency and high ethical standards”.
