International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA)

The International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) is a global platform open to organizations working within the field of sport for all, recreational sports and physical activity. Created in 1995, ISCA is today a global actor closely cooperating with its 130 member organizations, international NGOs, and public and private sector stakeholders. Its 40 million individual members from 65 countries represent a diverse group of people active within youth, sport and cultural activities.

  • supporting cross-border understanding through sport and culture
  • promoting sport as a bearer of cultural identity
  • encouraging the broadest possible participation in sports and cultural activities for affiliated members
