Inspired by our recent partnership with Global Sports Heritage Association (GSHA – /’ɡeeʃə/), we are reminded that sports are of critical importance to our emotional, spiritual, physical, communal, and societal well-being.

International Museum Workers Day is excited to announce ‘Sports Heritage’ as the theme for the 6th IMWD2020 to be marked on the last Thursday in October, 10.22.2020 #SportsIMWD.

We acknowledge that physical education, physical activity and sport form part of humanity’s non-tangible heritage which include dance, recreational, organized, competitive, casual, traditional and indigenous sports and games.

This IMWD, we honor UNESCO’s International Charter of Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport which is a rights-based reference that orients and supports policy- and decision-making in all aspects of sport.
