The meeting will be held in the framework of the Kazan Action Plan, which was adopted at UNESCO’s Sixth International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport (MINEPS VI) by UNESCO’s Member States, the Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport (CIGEPS) and its Permanent Consultative Council, as well as other experts and practitioners in the field of physical duration, physical activity and sport policy.

The workshop will consider three main areas of the Kazan Action Plan, namely:

- Ensuring the maximum contribution of sports to sustainable development and the preservation of peace;
- Protect the integrity of sport.

As a result of the workshop, concrete initiatives and proposals regarding the development of sport as a means to promote sustainable development in Kazakhstan will be identified, with a view to establishing a closer partnership between the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the UNESCO Cluster Office in Almaty.
