The UNESCO Chair in Inclusive PE, Sport, Recreation and Fitness brings a part of UNESCO, the UN Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, to Tralee. The UNESCO Chair programme encourages international collaboration and networking to advance towards creating better societies, and help UNESCO achieve its global goals relating to pressing challenges that can contribute to the development of societies.

UNESCO Chairholder - Dr. Florian Kiuppis

The guiding principle of inclusion is commonly discussed in context of education. However, which steps need to be taken in order to ensure inclusive sports in sports clubs, schools, and in less formalised contexts in the community at large, is a question that remained so far unanswered, arguably often even unasked. Please join us in our endeavour to collectively and inclusively work on the encouragement and promotion of participation, to the fullest extent possible, of persons with disabilities in mainstream sporting activities at all levels.
