ISF Educational Programme
ISF aims to promote school sport in all its forms as an educational tool for the physical, intellectual, moral, social and cultural development of students, to convey the Olympic spirit and the values of peace, friendship, solidarity and fair play, without discrimination of race, gender, sexual orientation, language, religion or philosophical beliefs, politics or other opinions, of origin, physical aspect, wealth, language, birth or any other situation.
ISF also aims to bridge the gap and facilitate contacts between school sports groups, to cooperate with and assist institutions, federations, associations, national or international groups with similar objectives. To that end, ISF will, among other things, promote, organize, supervise, coordinate meetings, conferences, events, and activities related to school sport and/or democracy values. It will also organize, promote, monitor and supervise competitions and international sports events for students.
At the crossroad between the formal educational framework and the field of sport, ISF is promoting and organising educational events to set up the proper environment to ensure the skills development of young people.
Fun & Skills Zone
The Fun and Skills zone is designed to be the location that gathers various different ISF partners in order to present their activities, aims and goals as well as provide interactive games. It will also be the place where the traditional ‘Nations Night’ will take place during which the participating delegations present their cultures with traditional music and attire on the main stage. This zone will be focus on three main goals.
First, to present the leading values of the ISF, starting with Fair Play, Clean Sport, Sport and Olympic Values and the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Secondly, thanks to the attendance of the International Sport Federations partners, the participants have the opportunity to discover new practices, sports and the value-based programmes being developed by these federations, and lastly, with the help of the organisers they will discover local sport and traditional culture and the backgrounds of the other participants thanks to the initiative of the Nations night.
ISF School Sport Forum
The ISF School Sport 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 parallel sessions. It is the platform for exchange between representatives of school sport organisations and public authorities, intergovernmental organizations, sport federations and partner to highlight and strengthen the role of school sport and the ISF as a vehicle for public policies aimed at young students.
This event is always organised in cooperation with the highest local academic authorities ensuring the academic level and scientific credibility. The LOC selects a higher academic institution to be the educational partner of the Conference.
