More than just paper partners
National NGOs as Pratical Project Partners
ISCA is continuing to develop practical work and project-related partnerships with national non-governmental sports organizations. These organizations may or may not be members of ISCA but all have a common goal:
To contribute to cross-border experiences in a real and practical way.
National NGO partners assist with cross-border activity development and hosting arrangements for events such as the European Youth and Sport Forum, ISCA European Sport for All Congress and the ISCA International Sport for All Congress.
Recent National NGO partners include:
Central Council of Physical Recreation (CCPR)
CCPR was a working partner and host of the European Youth and Sports Forum 2005. Highlights of the forum included the acceptance of the Declaration by Rt. Honorable Richard Caborn, Minister of Youth and Sport in the United Kingdom. CCPR played a central and active role in organizing the event, hosting 100 participants and implementing follow-up actions.
Finnish Gymnastics Federation (SVOLI), Finnish Sports Federation (SLU), Young Finland Association
SVOLI, SLU and Young Finland Association were working partners, hosts and sponsors of the European Youth and Sports Forum 2006. These organizations played a central and active role in organizing the event, hosting 100 participants and implementing follow-up actions.
Sports Union of Slovenia (SUS)
SUS is an ISCA member that has played a significant roll in Sport for All development in recent years. SUS has been a primary working partner and supporter of the project Democratic Development Through Grass-root Sport in South East Europe. The regional knowledge of SUS play a vital role in the success of this project.
SUS also hosted the 1st European Sport for All Congress and ISCA General Assembly 2006. The success of the 1st European Sport for All Congress included a diverse programme and non-typical presentation styles that engaged participants in an active way. The programme of presenters achieved the goal of ‘reaching beyond ourselves’ for confirmation of the importance and autonomy of Sport for All.
