ISO is happy to announce that it is become a new member of ISCA: International Sport and Culture Association! Here the website.

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. Created in 1995, ISCA is today a global actor closely cooperating with its 231 member organisations, international NGOs, and public and private sector stakeholders. Its 40 million individual members from 83 countries on five continents represent a diverse group of people active within youth, sport and cultural activities.

Created with the aim of providing an alternative to the increasingly performance-based attitude of the international sports federations, ISCA has grown rapidly since its foundation. The association is governed by an executive committee of nine elected members and is steered by continental and technical committees. The secretariat is based in Copenhagen.

ISCA’s philosophy is that sport is not just about competition and exercise, but also involves having a good time and making friends. Moreover, sport regulates social behaviour and creates a feeling of belonging – which in turn leads to a strengthening of democracy.

ISCA was created 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

European Community: Accreditation to the Transparency Register

International Sport Organization is happy to comunicate that has already completed the registration process to the European Transparency register of the European Community.

The organization is listed in the register under the number 154939736345-92.

This is an amazing and important goal reached by the organization!

Schermata 2019-10-28 alle 12.04.03

Citizens can, and indeed should, expect the EU decision-making process to be as transparent and open as possible. The more open the process is, the easier it is to ensure balanced representation and avoid undue pressure and illegitimate or privileged access to information or to decision-makers. Transparency is also a key part of encouraging European citizens to participate more actively in the democratic life of the EU.

The transparency register has been set up to answer core questions such as what interests are being pursued, by whom and with what budgets. The system is operated jointly by the European Parliament and the European Commission.

ISO AGM Results: New Future path of growth!

During the last AGM held by the International Sport Organization (ISO) held in Lugano, it was proposed and accepted several changes into the structures in order to provide a better services to the members, to better achieve the aims of the organization and to accept the new members requesting to access to the organization.

Regarding the structure of the organization, it has decided that a single organization will not be enough to support the members, to support the growing necessity and request of the Bionatural registry, to support the request of assistance and educations, to create a Network organization able to help the members all over the world.

ISO division regarding the Sport For All Championship, the members recognition and the Networking organization can’t continue to coexist with the Bionatural registry, the consultancy and the educational division.

Taking care of this issue, ISO has decided to split the organization in two, creating from the above-mentioned members division a new independent structure: The International Sport Network Organization (ISNO).

So, with a great pleasure, we are happy to introduce the new strategic plan of both ISO and ISNO.

  • To develop education path regarding Bionatural Registry

  • To recognized and certified at international level three types of organizations:
    • International Organization
    • National Organization
    • Clubs and other local organization
  • To create a network organization able to help the member to create a real and solid network, sharing members, sharing knowledge, experiences and opportunities
  • To create The ISNO Sport For All World Championship hold by all the organizations in a multi-sport event

  • To support members with educations, festivals, competitions and other opportunities where they need a strong and solid partner
