International Nordic Walking Association (INWA) Becomes a Federation


INWA has decided to officially change its English name to ”Federation” in the beginning of 2009, because this definition better describes INWA’s position and role as the official worldwide Nordic Walking organisation.

International Nordic Walking Federation (INWA) is represented at the moment in more than 40 nations with 20 national member organizations.

INWA is also a member of TAFISA which currently operates in 132 countries worldwide and is a partner of WHO (World Health Organization), IOC (International Olympic Committee) UNESCO (United Nations Educational and scientific and Cultural Organization) and ICSSPE (International Council of Sports Science and Physical Education). Co-operation and networking with TAFISA also supports the overall promotion of Nordic Walking.

INWA, representing Nordic Walking as its official and recognised World Federation, offers many practical opportunities to develop this natural, safe, efficient and suitable-for-all form of physical activity around the world. It creates projects with international and national health and sports organisations, government bodies, public health authorities, ministries and school organisations both directly and through its member organisations in countries all over the world.

INWA has just updated its website, which now better reflects the development of Nordic Walk
