A meeting of Experts will be organized, in Medellin (Colombia) from 9 to 12 September 2014, to revise the 1978 International Charter of Physical Education and Sport.

In accordance with 194 EX/Decision 9, experts from different organizations, appointed by UNESCO's Director-General, will develop a preliminary draft revised Charter of Physical Education and Sport.

Participants in the 5th International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport (MINEPS V) held in Berlin (Germany) from 28 to 30 May 2013, invited the Director-General to consider a revision of the Charter to reflect their findings and recommendations (Declaration of Berlin, paragraph 19 - cf. document 37 C/INF.14).

The General Conference at its 37th session addressed this matter during the discussion on the follow-up to MINEPS V (cf. document 37 C/INF.16) and adopted 37 C/Resolution 38. Consequently, by 194 EX/Decision 9, the Executive Board approved the plan and calendar for the revision of the Charter. The revised Charter will be submitted to the Executive Board at its 196th session.
