ISF School Sport Forum

Healthy lifestyle: the Importance and Role of School sport

CID Lexington room

Deauville, France


The ISF Forum offers the opportunity to increase knowledge and understanding about the international school sport movement and to know more about subjects related to education, culture and sport through a series of plenary and panel sessions. It is the platform for exchange between representatives of school sport organisations and public authorities, intergovernmental organizations, sport federations and partners to highlight and strengthen the role of school sport and the ISF as a vehicle for public policies aimed at young students. 

This edition of the ISF Forum will focus on the main topic of “Healthy lifestyle: the Importance and Role of School sport” and will take place on the 18th of May in the CID.

Gathering youth, policy makers and sport leaders the forum will be the occasion to exchange on school sport and the different angles that intergovernmental organisations (Council of Europe, European Commission, Unesco, Confejes), International sport federations (FIBA, UWW, BWF…) and academia, consider the role of school sport when tackling public policies, gender equality, safeguarding of children in sport, sustainable development or developing national policies.
