The Unesco supports the development of the Paralympic Movement

Unesco Member States have adopted a revised International Charter for Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport recognising the importance of sport for development and peace and strongly emphasising support for people with impairments. The adoption took place during the 38th session of the UNESCO General Conference, which met at the organisation’s headquarters from 3 to 18 November in Paris, France.

The Charter is important for the Paralympic Movement because National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) function in the context of the national sport and physical education system. The updated Charter can be used by NPCs and their national partners to influence for improvements to sport, physical education and physical activity opportunities for people with impairments.
