Description of pledge activities
The International School Sport Federation (ISF) will promote, encourage, secure, and develop school sport activities, providing all groups of school students and particularly girls aged 6-18 years old with more opportunities to practice, learn and engage in sport from the local school level to the international level. ISF will make school sport a central activity, creating the platform to integrate lifelong values and healthy lifestyle habits, thanks to several events organised from September 2021 until the end of 2022
We pledge to systematically partner for the priorities of the European Commission related to sport (diplomacy, Innovation), healthy lifestyle, Gender equality and youth, and continue to cooperate with the relevant stakeholders throughout our members to strengthen the role of school sport in different communities.
