Get Fit, Healthy and United Through Sport for All

Leaders Link Sport for All Closer to Civil Society Issues

50 presentations greeted over 100 delegates from 35 countries from around the world at the ISCA Congress 2007 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Congress was held at the Prince Hotel and Residences from 25-28 October. The overall Congress theme was Get Fit, Healthy and United Through Sport for All.


As the Congress was held on the Asian continent for the first time, delegates had a good opportunity to be inspired and motivated by Asian and Malaysian approaches to the Congress themes.


The Congress began with an Opening Gala hosted by the Malaysian Ministry of Youth and Sport. Greetings were delivered by Dr. Han Tieru, WHO Representative for Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia and Singapore. Dato' Liow Tiong Lai, Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Malaysia delivered the opening keynote address. This address was followed by a presentation of an ISCA-Ollerup award by Uffe Strandby, Ollerup Principal. The Deputy Minister graciously accepted two ISCA-Ollerup full scholarships for Malaysian youth to attend the long-term Youth Leader Education Training at Ollerup's International Academy. These scholarships are worth a combined 18,000 USD.


The two days that followed were packed with academic paper sessions, round-table sessions, forums and discussions on the main Congress topics of health and unity. The concluding plenary session saw seven persons in a 'lounge chair' discussion on greater solidarity and cooperation between sport for all organizations.
