The International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport (MINEPS) has been organized by UNESCO and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization since 1976.

It is a global forum for leading governmental and non-governmental stakeholders to develop future-oriented strategies which will help to use the benefits of physical education, physical activity, and sport for development.

UNESCO's sport-based flagship is designed to accelerate COVID-19 recovery, support inclusive and integrated policy-making, and enhance the well-being of youth around the world. Azerbaijan is one of the first countries to support the project.
