It’s an honor for us and moreover for the worldwide youth represented.
This youth must inspire us, we have to put all the efforts we can in order to make of this event a particular moment in the history of everyone.
I know, that, like always, we can count on the professionalism, passion, joy and quality of welcoming and organizing of UNSS and mark the story of the worldwide school sport.
France, represented by the UNSS, is a crucial partner for the welcoming of the most bigger ISF school championships ? A historic and major expertise in the sports and educational movement.
We can also count on our partners’s essential support : Region Ile de France, the City of Paris, but on our private partners like MAIF and MGEN too.
