February saw the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), announce the launch of two new Quality Physical Education (QPE) publications.
QPE represents active learning for all, supporting the development of emotional, physical, and social skills that enable youth to become active, healthy, responsible, and well-rounded citizens.
The Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport (CIGEPS) was established to promote the role and value of sport, as well as its importance towards public policy. Through this committee, UNESCO is uniquely positioned to push governmental action in the field of sport and physical education with the implementation of evidence-based physical education and sport policies and programmes. Since 2018, ISF has participated in the CIGEPS Session meetings, having attended the 2018 Session in Paris, 2019 in Geneva, and the 2020 meeting which was held online.
Currently the ISF is developing policies towards more accessible and educational school sport. This includes the implementation of youth leaders’ programmes, emphasising education through sport, developing educational programmes on Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, and supporting the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities.
Building on the success of the Quality Physical Education Policy Report, these new QPE publications have been developed to support and accelerate the COVID-19 recovery efforts as well as create a ‘new standard’, found through inclusion and resilience.
