The aim of this international congress was to strengthen international cooperation in the field of physical education and sport and to promote practical measures based on partnership among government authorities, volunteer organizations, and private national or multinational corporations, by pointing out the contribution that the rational practice of physical activities and sport can make to cultural, economic, and social development. The congress examined four themes: (1) sport and cultural identity; (2) sport in the education of young people; (3) sport and health; and (4) sport and development. This document summarizes presentations at the opening and closing meetings, general discussion on the four themes, and reports of groups working on each of the four themes. A summary of the deliberations offers comments on sport and culture, sport and education, the social dimension of sport, purposes and benefits of sport, risks and aberrations, and sport as an aid to development. Seven recommendations are offered. Two appendixes list the 131 participants from 60 countries and the papers contributed by the participants. (JDD)
