Start date: Feb 29, 2016, End date: Feb 27, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The “NowWeMove” campaign a European project which was initiated in 2012 with one prime vision: to increase the number of Europeans who are active in sport and physical activity by 2020. The campaign is led by International Sports and Culture Association (ISCA) with a support of numerous partners throughout the Europe. The “NowWeMove” campaign provides the opportunity for 8 young people from different European countries to be EVS volunteers in the office of the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA), based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The main theme dealt with is grassroots sport and its different components - sport and health, sport and young people, sport for disadvantaged groups - through the implementation and coordination of the NowWeMove campaign, an ISCA initiative to tackle physical inactivity all over Europe by engaging local MOVE Agents and local organisations in the provision of sport and physical activity opportunities for all. The project is an expression of ISCA’s commitment to build bridges between people, countries and cultures through the promotion of grassroots sport and its social and health benefits. This project not only allows the participating volunteers to be involved as active European citizens in ISCA, based in Copenhagen, but it also makes an impact all over Europe by promoting European values, volunteering and healthy lifestyles. The project “NowWeMOVE EVS II” will provide the volunteers with unique learning experience. Through their involvement in wide range of activities, they will improve key competences and gain a wide range of skills such as teamwork and project management skills. Volunteers will experience the benefits of working in multinational team which will allow them to improve not only in professional field, but also in area of personal development by enriching them with understanding of other cultures and traditions. They will be given an opportunity to develop and implement their own ideas in the daily work of ISCA and through this they will contribute in further expansion and improvement of the “NowWeMove” campaign. ISCA and sending organisations will gain increased inspiration and capacity as regards international and intercultural competence, and better networking opportunities for the future as a result.
