It is the aim of the MOVE Congress to create an open, innovative space for sharing successes and challenges to foster successful future actions promoting physically active lifestyles. The MOVE Congress is all about Moving People!

This biennial event is the flagship event of ISCA, and it gathers stakeholders including people working in grassroots sport associations, sports federations, NGOs, governmental bodies and municipalities, the corporate sector, universities and communications. 

The innovative sessions and methodologies and an extra focus on being physically active during the Congress ensure a unique experience and a great level of interaction among the participants.
