ISCA ANNUAL REPORT 2018

President’s Introduction

PRESIDENT’S INTRODUCTION:

MOVING PEOPLE IS OUR MISSION

ISCA’s mission is to enable individual citizens and their communities to ‘cash in’ on the social, physical and mental benefits from a physically active lifestyle. With our 240 member organisations as a starting point, we strive to increase local organisations’ capacities to provide their citizens with practical solutions that they can use to live a physically active life. We call this enabling the Human Right to MOVE.

27.5% OF THE WORLD’S CITIZENS ARE INACTIVE

In October 2018 the medical journal The Lancet published a survey with the worldwide score for physical activity. This score is 72.5%, meaning that 27.5% of our fellow citizens have insufficient fitness levels and do not benefit from all the ‘wellness vitamins’ that physical activity contains. This overall score uncovers some big differences between continents, cultures, cities and, not least, citizens’ demographics. Some societies still have some significant challenges, but at the same time huge potential to change many lives. This current status of inactivity also reveals the alarming fact that there has been no positive change from 2001 to 2016. That means if the current trend continues, the 2025 global physical activity target of a 10% relative reduction in insufficient physical activity will not be met! BUT there are positive tendencies evolving as well.

OUR EFFORTS ARE REACHING DECISION-MAKERS

A decade of raising awareness and gaining attention from various sectors about the human and financial cost of inactivity did culminate in 2018.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) managed to align its 194 member states in the adoption of the Global Action Plan on Physical Activity 2018-2030 (GAPPA). The GAPPA underlines the importance of, and gives guidance on, how and where stakeholders having an interest or obligation to contribute to solutions should focus. In October 2018, the Council of Europe, with its 47 member states, also underlined its involvement in sport and recreational physical activity with the adoption of the Tbilisi Declaration, where the member states “commit to advocating physical activity and sport for all as a fundamental right for every human being”.

TRANSFORMING PLANS INTO ACTION

We all know that action plans and declarations made by inter-governmental institutions cannot change the world of tomorrow by themselves. Nevertheless, I will, as President of ISCA, applaud these actions that have been taken. They demonstrate awareness and political interest in making people’s lives better by using the simple instrument of physical activity. The task for all is to transform these fine declarations and plans into local and national action. ISCA’s role is clear! We want to develop and deliver practical solutions, advocacy and campaigns to our members and partners. These are the cornerstones of our strategy and our commitment to enabling the Human Right to MOVE. MOGENS KIRKEBY ISCA President

Therefore, we constantly search for good practices in physical activity programmes and other examples that can be shared with others for inspiration and adaptation.� Jacob Schouenborg ISCA Secretary General

LEARN.ISCA.ORG:

Online courses are the next level in training and development for the physical activity sector

For more than 20 years ISCA has been dedicated to developing a wealth of resources, together with our project partners, for people working in the grassroots sport and physical activity sector. So in 2018, we have taken these tools to the next level by taking a leap into online learning.

NEW ONLINE LEARNING PLATFORM

Our new online learning platform learn.isca.org is a brand new strategic investment for ISCA, as we embark on an important journey to reach out to more organisations in our sector – not only our members, but other individuals and organisations working in grassroots sport and physical activity promotion worldwide.

ACTIVEVOICE COURSE NOW AVAILABLE

As a frontrunner in this space, we aim to take leadership in showing how these tools can be used effectively in our sector. The first example is the ActiveVoice course, which gives an expert-led walkthrough of how to use advocacy to gather support from stakeholders who can help you in your work. Follow the QR code to take the course – it’s free, and let us know what you think!


FREE WEBINARS SHARE EXPERTISE WORLDWIDE In October, ISCA broadcast its first webinar live from Copenhagen featuring a debate on the concept of MOVEment Spaces between speakers representing grassroots sport (Jakob Juhl Pedersen, Director of DGI Copenhagen), city planning (Rikke Faaborg Jarmer, Development Director of By & Havn at the City of Copenhagen) and architecture (Jakob FĂŚrch, Development Consultant at the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities).

To coincide with World Refugee Day on 20 June, ISCA and our Erasmus+ and NordPlus project partners launched new Integration of Refugees through Sport resources for grassroots sport organisations to use when working on activities with refugees and other initiatives that focus on social inclusion. The resources, including an implementation guide, tips and tricks for working with refugees, best practices, videos and other inspirational stories, are presented on the Integration of Refugees through Sport website, which is set to host an eLearning module in 2019. The main message that has recurred throughout the Integration of Refugees through Sport project is that sport and simple physical movements can be used as a momentary relief for refugees, and can open doors to new social contacts and different cultures. And that sport and physical activity are also simply about people wanting to #PlayTogether. In 2018, ISCA received an Erasmus+ Sport grant to continue this work with a new project called MOVE Beyond. The project takes the next

step into programme implementation by pairing grassroots sport and non-sport NGOs such as the Red Cross and Save the Children to pilot new initiatives in Denmark, Italy, Sweden and the UK.

Pioneers of Grassroots Sport Diplomacy embark on their journey

With a successful EU proposal to start a new project on Grassroots Sport Diplomacy in 2018, ISCA has invented a new concept and invited a cross-sector group of partners from two continents to explore and develop it in practice. Since January, the partner consortium – the pioneers of Grassroots Sport Diplomacy – have mapped how grassroots sport diplomacy can be distinguished from sport diplomacy and other types of diplomacy. This has included consulting people who are actually engaging in these actions around the world. Seven pilot actions also started in 2018, giving selected grassroots sport organisations the opportunity to test different approaches to diplomacy across sectors and across borders. As frontrunners in this space, ISCA will soon launch an online hub of knowledge, best practices and eLearning on this new concept. Stay tuned as we invite you to join the journey with us…

WHAT IS GRASSROOTS SPORT DIPLOMACY? Extract from Grassroots Sport Diplomacy: Overview, Mapping and Definitions Report. “Grassroots sport diplomacy could be defined as a new qualitative, cost efficient and impactful approach aiming at increasing or creating lasting dialogue and cultural understanding; facilitating transfer of knowledge between the grassroots sport sector and relevant actors; and contributing to society and individual development in the health, educational, sport or social fields.”

KEY FACTS Project period: January 2018-December 2019 Co-funded by: European Commission (Erasmus+ Sport Collaborative Partnerships) Grant amount: €400,000 Partners: ISCA (project lead), European Observatory of Sport and Employment (France), Think Tank Sport and Citizenship (France), French Institute for International and Strategic Studies (France), Danish National Olympic Committee and Sport Confederation (Denmark), UBAE (Spain), UISP (Italy), National School, University and Leisure Sport Federation (Hungary), Portuguese Institute for Sport and Youth (Portugal), SESC São Paulo (Brazil).

ISCA AWARDS celebrating partnerships that create active urban spaces

ISCA AWARDS We launched the ISCA Awards in 2018 to celebrate physical activity promoters who are creating a big impact in their communities. The next ISCA Awards will be offered in 2020, when we announce the next theme and call for applications.

This year, ISCA aimed to recognise partnerships that have transformed urban spaces into active spaces with its first ISCA Awards, under the MOVEment Spaces theme. A jury of selected experts in urban planning, sport facilities and physical activity promotion shortlisted 12 partnerships and awarded three of these in the categories of green (parks and other green areas) black (asphalt and paved areas) and blue (open water areas) spaces. The voting was opened to the public to select the fourth ISCA Award winner for 2018 from the 12 shortlisted partnerships. Thanks to a great response from ISCA members and followers, we received 3605 votes.

THE WINNERS

Green Spaces Award: Fitness-Locations, from DTB, Germany. “We are happy and proud to win an ISCA Award for MOVEment Spaces. We didn’t expect this and our partners are also really happy,” says Pia Pauly, the head of DTB’s Sport Development department. Black Spaces Award: Looking for a place to Dream, from Game, Lebanon. “It fills my heart with joy knowing that a small idea we discussed in our small office got this far. I never have thought the result would turn out to be as amazing as this. This campaign started with a dream and now it’s

getting the recognition it deserves, because of this, I see that youth will help us in finding more urban places to be active together,” says Salem Loutfi, a street basketball Playmaker at GAME Lebanon. Blue Spaces Award: Bathing Zones from City of Copenhagen, Culture and Leisure Department, Denmark. “On behalf of the City of Copenhagen, I am certainly proud that our bathing zones have won an international award. In Copenhagen we take great pride in the clean harbour and our ability to include it in our active urban spaces. If our bathing zones can be an inspiration to other cities, we are very happy,” says Mads Kamp Hansen, Head of the City of Copenhagen’s Cultural Development. People’s Choice Award: Swim Distance Markers in Galway Bay from Healthy Ireland - Healthy Cities and Counties (38% of the votes). “Galway City, Ireland, is delighted to secure the ‘People’s Choice Award’, which we think reflects the broad appeal of sea swimming and also the simplicity of the idea,” says Fiona Donovan, Project Lead for the Healthy Ireland.

MOVING PEOPLE – MOVING EUROPE connects project partners and high-profile speakers with a shared ambition

The second Moving People – Moving Europe conference brought together 175 participants representing 88 organisations from 32 countries at the French National Olympic Committee Sports C.N.O.S.F. in Paris for a one-day seminar and workshops underlining the value of alliances that can increase physical activity levels not only in Europe, but across the world.

HIGH PROFILE KEYNOTES

ISCA created Moving People – Moving Europe in 2016 as a way of bringing partners from different EU Erasmus+ projects together to hold their closing and progress meetings in one place, to network and learn from each other and meet invited speakers from institutions such as the EU Sport Unit, WHO and public health authorities, as well as industry experts. The 2018 edition delivered an even more extensive programme including the following keynote presentations: • Advancing the Human Right to MOVE, Mogens Kirkeby, ISCA President, Denmark • WHO Europe Strategy for Physical Activity – does grassroots sport fit in?, Lea Nash Castro, WHO Europe Technical Consultant, Denmark • Advocating for physical activity on the national level – in a crowded space, Jane Ashworth, StreetGames CEO, UK • The role of cities in promoting the Human Right to MOVE, Michael Shiosaki, Director of Planning and Development, Seattle Parks and Recreation, United States • Will Paris 2024 deliver a grassroots sport legacy?, Damien Combredet, Head of Legacy for the City of Paris’ General Delegation for the Olympic and Paralympic Games & Major Sporting Events, France

MOST COLOURFUL AWARDS?

Three workshops followed the plenary session, showcasing the results of three Erasmus+ projects: ActiveVoice and MOVEment Spaces (led by ISCA) and European Us Girls (led by StreetGames). The ISCA Awards ceremony wrapped up the programme with a burst of colour and fun, where four partnerships who have turned urban spaces into active spaces received their customised Lego awards depicting black (asphalt and paved areas), green (parks) and blue (water) spaces.

DID YOU KNOW? ISCA created MOVE Week in 2012 as the flagship event of the NowWeMOVE campaign. Sesc launched Semana Move as part of the MOVE Brazil campaign in 2013, and rolled out Semana Muévela to other Latin America countries in 2015.

A record 12.5 million people participated in MOVE Week Latin America

When Maria Luiza Souza Dias, Sesc Manager of Physical Sportive Development and ISCA Vice President, presented the final tally of MOVE Week Latin America (Semana Move and Semana Muévela) countries, events and participants at the end of 2018, we could not believe our eyes… With two new countries on board (Guatemala and Panama), plus 59,859 events and 12.5 million participants, this year’s edition, held from 22-30 September, was not just the biggest yet – it smashed last year’s results with four times the number of participants and over three times more events! “Many activities were carried out during an intense week and many people were made aware of the regular practice of sport and physical activity,” she said. “Thanks to the work of several teams, including the dedicated team at Sesc São Paulo and other states of Brazil, and the various physical activity promoters who believe in the cause, we have taken this movement to different corners of Latin America.” Some of the high profile “Movers” (MOVE Agents) in 2018 included the Brazilian Paralympic Committee, the Gustavo Kuerten Institute and the Colombian Government Department of Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity.

By connecting its National Community Sports Games with Semana Muévela, the Sports Ministry of Venezuela amassed over 9 million participants, as reported by 7154 event coordinators across the country. Events ranged from team sports and fun runs to a night bike ride, an “aquathlon” and a symposium on football studies. NowWeMOVE campaign manager Laska Nenova also presented “Keeping grassroots sport at the top of political agendas” at the International Week of Sports for Social Change conference at Sesc 24 de Maio in Brazil.

2018 MARKS 7TH EDITION OF EUROPEAN MOVE WEEK MOVE Agents from 23 Europeans countries registered 1279 events for MOVE Week 2018, which took place from 28 May-3 June. Over 100 events were organised in Bulgaria, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Serbia and Slovenia respectively, and Spain’s largest cities, Madrid and Barcelona, offered events for the whole community ranging from school children to the elderly. Registration is now open for MOVE Week 2019 (27 May-2 June) at moveweek.eu

Two teams #BikeForEurope over 22 days and 3500km

The third edition of NowWeBike, #BikeForEurope, got underway on 1 September as two teams of recreational cyclists departed separately from two different countries, the Netherlands and Greece, and met in Vienna, Austria, on 22 September to kick off the European Week of Sport 2018. The aim of the cross-border cycling tour was to raise awareness about cycling as a driver for social inclusion and the benefits of active transport to our health and the environment. The Bike for Europe North and South Teams travelled a total of 1750km each along several EuroVelo routes and parts of the Cycling Cities network in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria and Greece. UCI Cycling for All also supported the tour as a coordination and promotional partner.

GESTURE OF EUROPEAN SOLIDARITY

The European Commission co-funded the tour as an official event as part of the lead-up to the European Week of Sport opening in Vienna. The city was also the host of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the EU. Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Tibor Navracsics was there to greet the teams and receive the last of the 23 olive trees the South Team had carried with them from Olympia, Greece, as a gesture of peace and European solidarity for each country they visited along the way to Vienna.

DONATION CHALLENGE RAISES 4.8 MILLION KM

The Bike for Europe Kilometre Donation Challenge brought people from around the world closer together through cycling, and the 11,000 participants’ donations of 4.8 million kilometres enabled ISCA to donate over 100 bicycles to organisations working with refugees, asylum seekers, migrant women and orphans in Greece, Bulgaria and the Netherlands.

OPEN STREETS DAY: 22 SEPTEMBER 2019

New NowWeMOVE event to open streets for physical activity

Open Streets Day is a brand new NowWeMOVE campaign initiative that has been selected as an official European Week of Sport event in 2019. The concept of Open Streets is simple: To use the public streets in urban areas as the venue for physical activity events organised by the local community themselves. To enable this, ISCA will create tools for local citizens to use when planning, promoting and staging their events. This bottom-up approach aims to empower citizens to utilise active spaces where they are, and is inspired by the successful Colombian concept of Ciclovias, where main roads are closed off for cars on Sunday mornings for citizens to enjoy walking, running, cycling or skating through their city. Ciclovias have since expanded across Colombia, Latin America, the US and Canada, with over 500 examples recorded to date. ISCA will build on this expertise in cooperation with Ciclovias Recreativas de las Americas and 8 80 Cities, both of whom are ISCA partners.

European Week of Sport Denmark the biggest yet

ISCA is a European partner of the #BeActive European Week of Sport, as well as the National Coordinating Body for the European Week of Sport in Denmark. The Danish Ministry of Culture appointed ISCA to specifically take on the coordination role in Denmark, where ISCA has its headquarters, and as part of this role we work with partners across the country who deliver events during and outside of the Week supporting the #BeActive message. In 2018, these partners delivered over 300 events across Denmark.

#BEACTIVE NIGHT

22 and 28 September The Move for Life festival in Aarhus launched the European Week of Sport 2018 and the first #BeActive Night in Denmark. The large scale event took place during the weekend of 22-23 September and was organised by DGI Østjylland, a regional association of ISCA member DGI in East Jutland in collaboration, with Folkets Møde (a meeting of volunteers and experience exchange) and Aarhus – European Volunteering

MARGUERITE RUN

23 September Coordinated by one of the biggest newspapers in Scandinavia, Politiken, with support from Trygfonden and the Bevæg dig for livet campaign, the Marguerite Run (Margueritløbet) featured 37 runs along parts of the picturesque Marguerite Route across Denmark. On Sunday 23 September, thousands of people set off on their run at the same time. Many of whom were not experienced runners, but attracted to this unique event that combines sightseeing with physical activity.

UN CITY OFFICE ACTIVITY “TAKEOVER”

27 September ISCA and the Ollerup Academy for Physical Education made the hours around lunch at UN City in Copenhagen ones to remember, taking over the lobby to encourage physical activity. ISCA’s collaboration with WHO Europe for the event is the second ongoing action to promote physical activity together. Ten varied physical activity stations were set-up, from a slow biking contest to seated office exercises. Those who were more adventurous could follow the lead of the Ollerup students, who put on a display of parkour and acrobatics before teaching staff members how to do back-flips and basic parkour techniques.

festival. The main attractions of the day were an abundance of races, from 60km cycling to a 400m children’s sprint, and more than 20,000 people got involved.

LOCAL HERO AWARD NOMINEE

Jens Mundeli-Jensen A janitor at a small Danish primary school “Busses School”, Jens has transformed the school’s extra-curricular activities – for the children, their teachers and parents – into a hub of physical activity. Running is his speciality, and as well as organising charity runs for the school, he has secured sponsorships for sportswear and extra cash for equipment by recycling bottles and cans. In recognition of his efforts, Jens was one of three shortlisted nominees for the #BeActive local hero award and travelled to Sofia to take part in the Awards Gala. Website: europeanweekofsport.dk

«When I came out of my office to go for lunch, I was so happy when I saw all the activities and I really got touched. I was feeling this community, standing and cheering, and it just reminds me of how much I appreciate physical activity and movement and how I miss it actually.»

ADVOCACY “You cannot sell a problem, but you can use the problem to introduce the framework of a situation. If you cannot sell a problem, then what you can sell is a solution. Selling or promoting a solution at the right time, in the right place and in the right context is how to do advocacy. Moving People is about investing in lives. It is a solution to many problems, so what you can ask relevant stakeholders in health, transport, sport, the environment, urban planning or other sectors is why not invest in this solution?� Mogens Kirkeby ISCA President


Advocacy

ISCA ANNUAL REPORT 2018

«The WHO’s Global Action Plan is an opportunity for ISCA and ISCA members to talk to governments and stakeholders, to cooperate and to push for more physical activity. And we will do our part.» JACOB SCHOUENBORG ISCA Secretary General

Clear ISCA footprint on new WHO Action Plan In 2017, ISCA and our members contributed to the World Health Organisation’s new Global Action Plan on Physical Activity (GAPPA) throughout the drafting process, which resulted in more emphasis being given to the role of civil society to meet the plan’s goals. This year, we invited our project partners, members and extended network to join us in creating some social media buzz prior to the plan’s adoption in May and launch in June. And together we succeeded in making an impact. A ScotPublicHealth report on the tweets and retweets of posts tagged #GAPPA put ISCA at the top of the list of Twitter engagement and our ActiveVoice partners UISP and Healthy Stadia in the top 10 of content related categories. Our combined advocacy efforts underline the potential of the grassroots sport and physical activity organisations to get into the global conversation and influence policy in sectors such as health, which remains one of the top drivers of external attention to our sector.

ISCA’s Human Right to MOVE concept finds international support

1

ISCA President Mogens Kirkeby was in Tbilisi in his capacity as a member of the Consultative Committee of the Council of Europe Enlarged Partial Agreement of Sport (EPAS).

At the 15th Council of Europe Conference of Ministers responsible for Sport in Tbilisi, Sport Ministers from a range of the 47 Council of Europe member states adopted a resolution on the protection of human rights in sport, including the so-called International Declaration on Human Rights and Sport (the Tbilisi Declaration). In a bold move, the Ministers adopted the declaration with a separate commitment to advocating physical activity and sport for all as a fundamental right of every human being.

«The Tbilisi declaration brings the Council of Europe into the lead of international political advancement of the cause for physical activity and grassroots sport. Following ISCA’s announcement and work on the concept of the Human Right to MOVE, I am very pleased to note and support the Tbilisi Declaration, where Sport Ministers assume leadership for advocating for the right to physical activity and participation sport.» MOGENS KIRKEBY ISCA President

This is perfectly in line with the concept that ISCA has crafted and advocated, called the Human Right to MOVE, which was the theme of the MOVE Congress in 2017 in Birmingham, UK, and is now part of ISCA’s mission statement. ISCA began to explore this perspective in 2012, commissioning a report on a ‘Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) to Grassroots Sports and Physical Activities’, by Alessandra Teixeira. ISCA’s Executive Committee has reviewed the Tbilisi Declaration and, in a swift move, has agreed to endorse the declaration as the first NGO in the world to do so.

“We believe that ActiveVoice should not be seen as a project that has a beginning and an end, but more like a spark to embed advocacy into our organisations’ DNA. We have a plan that everyone involved in our organisation’s work should be ready for advocacy at any time and place and be ready to present appropriate data whenever suitable. This has already happened on many occasions during the ActiveVoice project.” V4Sport President Jakub Kalinowski captured the motivation of the ActiveVoice partners to continue the advocacy work they started through the project at the culmination of the project at the Moving People – Moving Europe conference in Paris. In 2018, the national partners’ advocacy efforts reached out to over 1500 stakeholders in education, as well as to Ministers and other decision makers at conferences, events, festivals, award ceremonies and by approaching them directly. They also linked their work to existing projects (such as Active School Communities), the NowWeMOVE campaign, and initiatives such as the Active Healthy Kids Alliance (V4Sport and BG Be Active contributed to the Report Card Global Matrix 3.0), and the WHO’s Global Action Plan for Physical Activity (see page 27). Italian partner UISP took the project on a tour through Italy, organising round table meetings and presentations as far and wide as Rome, Milan, Bologna and Sardinia, and launched a “Closing the care circle” resource featuring good

practices in the promotion of physical activity to women who work in care services.

Partner’s Projects

Projects led by our members and partners NEW IN 2019: CHANGE PROJECT In recent years we have seen increasing success among our members in bidding for Erasmus+ projects and in securing funding from other sources. Here we feature projects in which ISCA is a partner.

The CHANGE project will, for the first time at the EU level, aim to define the skills and competences of those working in sport for development, focusing on the two key roles: the sport for development coordinator and the sport for development activator. The project will follow the 7-Step model successfully used in the S2A Sport project to develop a training programme for sports administrators. Project lead: EOSE, France Period: January 2019-December 2021 Grant amount: €383,779 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ Sport Collaborative Partnerships

EUROPEAN FITNESS BADGE – DISSEMINATION, EVALUATION AND IMPROVEMENT A follow-up project to the successful European Fitness Badge, which developed an easy and fun fitness test suitable for all ages, with a focus on evaluating the use of the tests so far, increasing the reach and take-up of the tool through further dissemination, and ultimately improving the offer. This will include developing guidelines for implementing the European Fitness Badge, translating materials to make the tests easier to deliver, coordinating more marketing and promotional activities, and establishing municipal/regional networks across Europe. Project lead: German Gymnastics Federation (DTB) Period: January 2018–December 2019 Grant amount: €380,198 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ Sport Collaborative Partnerships Website: fitness-badge.eu

EUROPEAN YOUTH HEALTH CHAMPIONS EUPASMOS The EUPASMOS project is aiming to streamline and align the different ways to measure citizens’ physical activity levels across Europe (self-assessed and objective measures). ISCA is an associated partner of the project. Project lead: Portuguese Institute of Youth and Sport (IDPJ) Period: January 2018–December 2019 Grant amount: €399,573 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ Sport Collaborative Partnerships

The European Youth Health Champions project aims to show that the peer education method is useful for tackling sensitive issues such as sexual health, HIV prevention and domestic violence, and is especially effective in promoting physical activity and healthy active lifestyles. Research findings gathered during the project from focus groups, surveys, on-site training camps, and case studies involving young peer educators aged between 14 – 25 years are being used to develop a training resource that will be launched in 2019. Project lead: StreetGames, UK Period: April 2017–March 2019 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships (Youth) Website: network.streetgames.org/our-workeurope/european-youth-health-champions


Partners’s Projects

NEW IN 2019: MOVE TRANSFER II MOVE Transfer II builds further on ISCA’s methodology of transferring a good practice in sport and physical activity from one country or setting to another. This project will transfer the Slovenian Healthy Club model and Quality Mark to Italy and Romania, to provide local communities in Slovenia, Italy and Romania with more quality and accessible sport and physical activity programmes. The model was previously rolled out to Bulgaria and Malta in the MOVE Transfer I small collaborative partnership. Project lead: Sports Union of Slovenia Period: January 2019–June 2020 Grant amount: €45,725 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ Sport Small Collaborative Partnerships

NEW IN 2019: #BEACTIVE BEACH GAMES

EU-PALS – PHYSICAL ACTIVITY LABEL FOR SCHOOLS

The #BeActive Beach Games will test a new format that aims to stimulate the inclusion of different segments of society in sport and physical activity. The #BeActive Beach Games will use the beach setting to target specific groups such as families, persons with disabilities, senior citizens, and vulnerable members of society such as at-risk teenagers and immigrants. Two pilot Beach Games will be held in Latvia and Portugal in July and October 2019.

The main goal of the EU-PALS project is to develop a label that evaluates how schools across Europe use sport and physical activity for their students’ development and wellbeing. The label will involve indicators from three neighbouring fields: Physical education in schools; extracurricular physical activity programs with a focus on healthenhancing physical activity organised in or by the schools themselves; and school sport (both competitive and non-competitive).

Project lead: Latvian Sports Federations Council Period: January 2019–April 2020 Grant amount: €367,185 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ Sport Collaborative Partnerships

Project lead: Hungarian School Sport Federation Period: January 2018–December 2019 Grant amount: €336,713 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ Sport Collaborative Partnerships

#DOPOUT - SOCIAL NETWORK AND PEER EDUCATION AGAINST DOPING

The European Us Girls project is rolling out StreetGames’ award-winning UK initiative Us Girls across Europe with adaptable, interactive training opportunities for young peer leaders in grassroots sport. Two onsite test events were jointly organised by StreetGames and Italian partner UISP in the UK and Italy to consult young female peer leaders on their ideas for the content of the European Us Girls learning course and app. The project’s e-Learning course was launched at a special workshop at ISCA’s Moving People – Moving Europe conference in November.

#DopOut is a social media communication and awareness raising campaign addressed to young people (11-18 years) about doping and the use of prescription medicines in both grassroots and elite sport. The project has given young people the opportunity to create and independently manage the campaign, designing its tools and materials, including an animated promotional video that was launched in June. Events were also organised for adolescents outside schools, and promotional conferences were held in Rome at the start and conclusion of the campaign.

Project lead: StreetGames, UK Period: January 2017–December 2018, Grant amount €384,561 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ Sport Collaborative Partnerships Website: europeanusgirls.eu

Project lead: UISP, Italy Period: January 2017–December 2018 Grant amount: €284,700 Funding: Project co-funded by EU Erasmus+ Sport Collaborative Partnerships Website: dopout.eu

S2A SPORT: STRATEGY TO ACTION The S2A Sport project partners developed a series of handbooks to equip those working or volunteering in sport administration with the skills and knowledge that match their diverse roles in the sport sector. The handbooks include new research mapping the labour market, trends and perspectives for sport administration in Europe, occupational standards and functional maps for sport administration, and a training handbook based on an on-site course for sport administrators held in Finland in 2017.

Another action-packed year for ISCA’s European Volunteers

The Erasmus+ programme introduced the European Solidarity Corps in 2018 to build on its European Voluntary Service scheme that invites young people aged 18-30 to apply to work on projects with organisations around Europe. ISCA has hosted 58 European volunteers over the past 20 years and now hosts 5 volunteers as part of a Strategic EVS project. They share their highlights from an action-packed 2018. 1

BRINGING THE NOWWEMOVE MASCOT TO LIFE

“Taking the next step to build the NowWeMOVE mascot, put on the costume and get into character to motivate people to be more active has been a great experience. My absolute highlight, for sure, was the moment when I was lifted up by a group of cheerleaders to be their Triangle Flyer,” says Dominik Sandler. “The idea to bring the NowWeMOVE mascot to life arose one evening after work. We loved the

visual identity of the mascot graphics that had been used for some years, and thought why not try to put smiles on people’s faces by introducing a real-life mascot at our events to help engage more people in getting active!,” says Alexander Appleyard-Keeling. 2

#NOELEVATORSDAY ZAMBIA

Judith Solanas Sanchez finished her EVS at ISCA in February and went on to volunteer at NOWSPAR Women in Sport in Zambia. Her role helped #NoElevatorsDay reach Africa for the first time. On the day her team took the stairs instead of the elevator at the Ministry of Sport, Youth and Child Development in Lusaka, and the campaign gained traction around the nation with TV and radio slots. 3

VIKING CHALLENGE

A big part of the EVS experience at ISCA is the Viking Challenge… and no, it is not about sending volunteers to raid villages or to discover new continents! At the end of their year at ISCA as an EVS, all EVSs can attain a special Viking name if they have entered the sea at least once a month over the year. The harsh Danish winter climate can make this a real mental challenge, but what better way to spend your Sundays than on the beach with friends, food, and a warming drink here and there!

“I had a chance to meet ISCA representatives for the first time during the S2A Sport course in Finland. I was so inspired by the enthusiastic way ISCA’s former volunteers were talking about their work and by ISCA’s way of #MovingPeople, so I decided: I will definitely apply! Now I’m happy to be a part of an amazing team of young likeminded professionals!”

“I always wanted to work in an international environment. At ISCA I found a perfect combination of people with different backgrounds working towards one goal of moving people – whether it is biking across Europe or working out in the office! That shows it doesn’t matter where you come from, as long as you have the right goal and a unified team, you can make important changes.”

– IRINA COREACHINA

- MARIA EFREMOVA

“My time as an EVS at ISCA profoundly realigned my beliefs about what work actually is. Here I experienced meaningful tasks in a joyful and supportive team of colleagues who trust and believe in you while providing lots of opportunities, freedom and flexibility.”

“I have always believed that you should put passion and a part of your soul into whatever you do, and working at ISCA makes that easy to achieve! When you know that you are working alongside inspirational colleagues to benefit others it never seems like a chore.”

– DOMINIK SANDLER

– ALEXANDER APPLEYARD-KEELING

“Being a part of the ISCA team has been a great experience, on both personal and professional levels. I enjoy working side by side with passionate and dedicated people towards an important goal, as well as making new friends and sharing experiences.”
