Following a proposal from the International University Sports Federation (FISU), UNESCO members states have decided that 20th September will be the International Day of University Sport.


Based on the importance of physical education, activity and sport for a holistic education, UNESCO recognizes the role of universities to promote a healthy lifestyle.


UNESCO’s General Conference is inviting the tertiary/higher education system in all UNESCO member states to further develop participation opportunities in sport programmes on all performance levels.
