International Day of University Sport

Connecting students around the world

An annual tradition since 2016, the 20th of September is the International Day of University Sport (IDUS). Officially proclaimed by the United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organisation (UNESCO), this celebration helps create links between universities and their local communities with sport, physical activity and healthy living playing the leading role.

 

Through this event, FISU involves multiple university sports stakeholders and member organisations in IDUS activities, not only as a way to promote its sports events but also to create a debate on university sport and to promote FISU values. IDUS is a platform to exchange ideas, best practices, challenges and opportunities within and through university sport worldwide.

 

The day of celebration presents an opportunity to share knowledge on key issues relating to the development of sport and the University Sports Movement worldwide, and to improve awareness of the importance of sport in educational institutions, as well as FISU’s mission, current programmes, policies and priorities.
