The COVID-19 pandemic has spotlighted the value of good health and the need to build resilient systems. The impacts of the pandemic, reaching far beyond health, require a response which combines the skills, expertise and resources of public and private sector stakeholders.
The Physical Activity Committee’s (PAC) mission is to promote physical activity on a global level. The Committee also seeks to foster and encourage the participation of citizens of all countries in healthy sporting activities.
The PAC coordinates the industry’s joint response to the global physical inactivity epidemic by focusing on the following areas:
• Working with the United Nations Agencies and other multi-lateral organisations to prioritize physical activity on the global development agenda.
• Providing a global forum for WFSGI members to share best practices and lessons learned on approaches that increase participation in sport and physical activity.
• Supporting global, regional and national level advocacy work to promote physical activity and sport.
