Following the Resolution CIGEPS/2018/3, adopted by the Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport (CIGEPS) at its Ordinary Session in April 2018, a Working Group on the Revision of the Statutes of the CIGEPS is being established. The first meeting of this Working Group will take place at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris (Room XVI), on 18 June 2018.

The Working Group is expected to elaborate draft revised Statutes by the end of 2018, and to submit it before 31 January 2019 to the CIGEPS for its consideration and further submission to the governing bodies.

This revision will also make possible the adjustment of the CIGEPS Statutes to the context of UNESCO and United Nations system reform.

CIGEPS is comprised of expert representatives in the field of physical education and sport from 18 UNESCO Member States, each elected for a four year term. The Permanent Consultative Council (PCC), comprising key sport federations, UN agencies and NGOs, provides technical support and advice to the Committee.
