National Committees

The IYSPE 2005 encourages UN member states to actively participate in the commemoration by establishing National Committees and designating a National Focal Person to coordinate the domestic activities in accordance with the IYSPE 2005 concept and inline with resolution 1980/67 of the UN Economic and Social Council.

The National Committees or focal points have the responsibility for promoting activities related to the observance of the IYSPE 2005. The Committees should engage and include a broad range of country level actors, including: local governments, national Olympic Committees, sports federations and clubs, athletes, the private sector, interested academic circles, UN Country Teams and the NGO community. Committees are encouraged to develop inclusive strategies, and implement a diverse set of activities. National Committees may:

  • Host special events, meetings, conferences and propose the integration of existing events into their promotional and public awareness campaign.
  • Establish national committee websites and links to the official website of the IYSPE 2005.
  • Engage the private sector in initiatives that recognize the connectivity between private sector development and sport and physical education.
  • Organize national awards for development through sport and physical education.
  • Report on activities to the UN Office for the IYSPE 2005.

Please find below the list of identified focal points:

In case your country is not listed below and you need or have information about pertinent activities in commemoration of the IYSPE 2005 in your country, please e-mail the Office for the IYSPE 2005 (Veronique.ntamach@undp.org).
