The Sixth International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport (MINEPS VI) will be held at the Korston Club Hotel, Kazan, Russian Federation, from 13 to 15 July 2017

MINEPS conferences have been organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) since 1976.

MINEPS is a forum that facilitates intellectual and technical exchange in the field of physical education and sport and serves as an institutional mechanism for a coherent international strategy in this domain. It 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.

It is expected that MINEPS VI will bring together ministers and senior officials responsible for physical education and sport representing 195 UNESCO member states, as well as representatives of involved international sports organizations.

The Organizing Committee is headed by Vitaly Mutko, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, and includes the authorities of federal and regional bodies of executive powers.
