Since it was first adopted by the International Naturist Federaton (INF-FNI) in 1974, the definition of naturism has always been fundamentally the
same. But the exact wording used by federations, magazines, books and websites has varied a lot. In some cases, the
differences have been significant enough to alter the meaning.
The INF-FNI has been asked on many occasions to provide the official wording. Unfortunately the INF-FNI records
have not been consistent either. As such, the INF-FNI Central Committee initiated a project to research and determine the official wording of the INF-FNI’s definition of naturism. This is the final report from that project.
