World conferences of sport ministers have been organized by UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, since 1976; the most recent was held in Berlin, Germany, in 2013, where the Declaration of Berlin was adopted.

The conference is intended to take stock of global developments in sport and to formulate strategic issues in international sport policy, with special reference to UNESCO's International Charter of Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport, the Declaration of Berlin and the UN Agenda 2030/Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

MINEPS is the only global platform of its kind, engaging governments, intergovernmental organizations, the sport movement, academia and specialized NGOs. The outcomes and recommendations of MINEPS are continuously strengthening the educational, cultural and social dimensions of physical education and sport while guiding the implementation of effective policies and practices around the world.
