UNESCO: United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization

The Organisation


International Fund for the Development of Physical Education and Sport
The General Conference of 1978 set up an intergovernmental committee to orient and supervise UNESCOís actions on the role of education in sport and sport in education. The committee, for its part, adopted an international charter and established a fund to promote the development of its activities. The Swiss artist Hans Erni , born in 1909, created the fundís poster. Science, mythology and history are recurring themes in his works which encompass paintings, sculpture and lithography. His style juxtaposes the world of Antiquity with the contemporary.
