ISCA’s mission is to empower organisations worldwide to enable citizens to enjoy their Human Right to MOVE with the purpose of:

  • 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.
