The International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) has joined forces with
eight associated partners and fifteen collaborating partners to take up the
challenge of promoting physical activity among socially disadvantaged groups.
To this aim, ISCA has been granted by the European Commission - under the
Health Programme 2008-2013 “Together for Health”- for the implementation
of the Move Project.
The MOVE project aims to collect and qualify good practices that promote
heath-enhancing physical activity among socially disadvantaged groups. In
this effort, the project will focus on experiences that have been successful
in targeting the following groups living in disadvantaged urban or rural
areas with socioeconomic challenges: youth, ethnic minorities and immigrants,
girls and women, seniors.
With the call for good practices, the MOVE partners invite organizations and
institutions working in diverse fields such as physical activity and sport,
health, education, urban planning and citizenship, among others, to submit
descriptions of their own physical activity initiatives and projects that are
aimed at socially disadvantaged groups. The call will give priority to
project experiences from Europe, but also project experiences coming from
outside Europe are welcomed.
To this aim, the University of Cassino (UNICAS) was invited by ISCA to
conduct the data collection process and the dissemination of the call of good
