ISCA has selected nine grassroots sport initiatives for hard-to-reach target groups that will be up-scaled or transferred to different communities within the same European country in 2015/2016. These initiatives have been identified as having run successfully in their current location and demonstrated the potential to expand their scope.
Organisations from Hungary, Malta, Slovenia, Romania, Italy, the UK, Belgium and Greece will be part of this upcoming round of the NowWeMOVE campaign’s MOVE Transfer national process, which is supported by Coca-Cola Europe. The 10-month process of up-scaling or transferring their initiatives will start in mid-June.
