The WFSGI is participating in the Sport Sector Dialogues between the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the private sport sector concerning the implementation of the GAPPA.
The Physical Activity Committee’s (PAC) has cooperated with the WHO on the following initiatives to raise awareness of the benefits of physical activity and increase physical activity levels on a global basis:
Joining forces for a healthier world:
The World Health Organization (WHO) and World Federation of Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI) partner to improve health through physical activity and sport.
Register of Commitments:
The WFSGI PAC has provided detailed feedback to WHO on the development of the public register that will publish and track voluntary commitments from representatives of the private sector and the wider global community that help elevate levels of physical activity (and therefore support the vision of the GAPPA and Sustainable Development Goal 3.4).
COVID-19 Free Physical Activity Resources:
During 2020, the WFSGI PAC and WFSGI membership created, adapted and made available a broad range of physical activity resources suitable for COVID-19 circumstances for use by children, adults and families in a range of languages, sports and activities, and formats. The resources were distributed to WFSGI’s broader stakeholder community and the general public as well as being made available on WFSGI’s and certain WFSGI member websites.
Support for #HealthyAtHome & WalkTheTalk:
Via press release and social media promotion, WFSGI and its members supported the WHO’s #HealthyAtHome campaign and the third global WalkTheTalk challenge. WFSGI member support included integration into brand communication and several athlete ambassadors supporting the intiative on their own platforms.
The PAC is certain that the physical inactivity pandemic can only be resolved through multi-stakeholder cooperation.
