Gathering experts from the UN system, NGOs, and academic institutions, its primary objective is the validation of Indicators of Quality Physical Education which were developed by UNESCO following a call from its Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport (CIGEPS) in 2011.

With the aim of operationalizing the core principles of these indicators, both at the upstream and grassroots levels, participants will analyze draft guidelines for governments and a draft toolkit for practitioners.

In this regard, not only does the consultation represent a unique and holistic opportunity to bridge the current gap between physical education policy and practice worldwide, but its outcomes bear significant potential in contributing to the post-2015 development agenda, in terms of inclusive education and global citizenship.
