The Sixth International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport, MINEPS VI, was held in Kazan, Russian Federation, from 13 to 15 July 2017.


On the basis of the Declaration of Berlin (2013), the International Charter of Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport (2015), and the United Nations Agenda 2030 as well as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) MINEPS VI aimed to form a basis for measurable action of governments and the sport movement.


MINEPS VI was structured around three main themes:

1) Developing a comprehensive vision of inclusive access for all;

2) Maximizing the contributions of sport to sustainable development and peace;

3) Protecting the integrity of sport.


It produced four main outcomes:

(i) Endorsement of the Follow-up Framework for the Declaration of Berlin and the new International Charter;

(ii) Recognition of available resources and identification of gaps;

(iii) Strengthening the linkages between sport policy development and the sustainable development goals (SDGs);

(iv) Adoption of an outcome document which will provide a basis for future oriented action by all stakeholders.
