This collective consultation will address the major dual challenge of the promotion and safeguard of traditional sports and games (TSG) as sports practices and intangible cultural heritage.

Following the revamp of the programme on the safeguarding and promotion of traditional sports and games, UNESCO organizes a Collective Consultation at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, on 6 and 7 July 2017.

Building on past work of UNESCO, the Collective Consultation will develop a new strategy on TSG that will include the following elements:
1. Elaboration of Policy Guidelines on TSG.
2. Establishment of an International Platform on TSG.
3. Development of an Online Worldwide Encyclopedia on TSG.
