No Elevators Day is an open activation event organised by the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA), a global umbrella association for organisations working within the field of sport for all, recreational sports and physical activity. Established in 1995, ISCA works with more than 260 member organisations, international NGOs and public and private stakeholders to create a network of physical activity promoters and specific actions that get citizens moving. With over 40 million individual members from 89 countries on five continents, ISCA’s members represent a diverse group of people active within grassroots sport, youth and cultural activities.

In 2012, ISCA launched the NowWeMOVE campaign with an overall objective to raise awareness of the benefits of sport and physical activity among citizens, to promote opportunities to be active, and to enable sustainable and innovative capacity building for providers of physical activity initiatives. Its activities have helped millions of people to “find their move”.
