INWA’s vision is to create a healthier world by inspiring more people to be physically active and achieve improved feelings of wellness for people of all ages and fitness levels. INWA will be recognised by other global governing sports bodies as the governing body for Nordic Walking.
INWA acts as the global governing body for Nordic Walking that sets the standards for how Nordic Walking is taught and practised, and how the activity is promoted around the world.
We do so by developing and delivering high-quality training materials, programmes and promotional support to our current and new members, enabling them to educate Nordic Walking Instructors and promote Nordic Walking in their own country to a consistent global standard.
“We also do so by staging various events and competitions such as World Nordic Walking Day, Worlds Cups and Championships, and other INWA branded events in co-operation with our member organisations to promote Nordic Walking as a competitive sport”.
