MOVE Congress 2019 organisers and supporters
The International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) is a global platform open to organisations working within the field of sport for all, recreational sports and physical activity. Founded in 1995, ISCA cooperates with its 240 member organisations, international NGOs, and public and private sector stakeholders. It has 40 million individual members from 88 countries, which represent a diverse group of people active within youth, sport and cultural activities. The MOVE Congress was established by ISCA in 2009 as a forum for cross-sector stakeholders in sport and physical activity. Up to this day, ISCA remains the main organiser of the event.
The National School, University and Leisure Sport Federation (NSULF) is an organisation of public utility and was established in 2017 by the amendment of the Act on Sport as an autonomous public body and which coordinates the operation of sports organisations in the fields of school, university sport and leisure sport. Although NSULF has been established recently, NSULF has become a key actor in Hungarian sport: it takes part in Erasmus Plus projects, and has become the responsible entity for the Hungarian cross-sectoral coordination mechanism for health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA). NSULF has three founding member organisations:
- Hungarian School Sport Federation
- Hungarian University Sport Federation
- Hungarian Leisure Sport Association
The Hungarian School Sport Federation (HSSF) is the biggest civil organisation in Hungarian youth sport education. The Federation, founded in 1987 went through a major transformation in 2012, extending its mission beyond school sport: HSSF decided to support teachers to implement quality physical education, and to promote health development through regular physical education. The mission of the organisation is therefore significantly wider today than before: the main goal is to increase the number of children who are actively involved in physical activity programs and promote the concept of health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA).
The Hungarian Leisure Sport Association, founded in 1989, is operating as a public benefit organisation. Its main goal is to raise the population’s body culture to a higher level, to promote physical activity and to raise publicity of healthy lifestyle. The association organises sport for all events for all segments of the society. As a national umbrella organisation it has member organisations and regional representatives all over Hungary supporting its mission is to make people active and healthy.
The Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities is one of the main supporters of the organisation of the MOVE Congress 2019 in Budapest.
