The Global Sport for All Movement came together in Tokyo, Japan, as the 26th TAFISA World Congress gathered 600 participants from 78 countries on 13-17 November, 2019, setting a new record for the event. 
Under the  theme "Sport for All Through Tradition and Innovation", the Congress engaged participants to share their experience and knowledge as well as discuss ideas on how to increase physical activity participation and better use sport as a tool for social change, building on existing resources but also finding new, innovative ways to reach these goals and tackle new challenges. | Read More...
A Unique Joint-Event!

The Congress featured a historic Joint-Event Day with the Smart Cities & Sport Summit, bringing both organisations' networks and stakeholders together on 14 November 2019. The sessions focused on the issues linked to physical inactivity within cities, innovation and partnerships - or how we can build the communities of tomorrow through Sport for All.
The Joint-Event Day was concluded with the launch of a Call for Action on Sport and Active Cities while TAFISA and the World Union of Olympic Cities sealed their future cooperation with the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding.
