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 its 240 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 88 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 the vision of getting 100 million more Europeans active by 2020. The campaign's overall objectives has been to raise awareness of the benefits of sport and physical activity among European 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”.

Since 2012, the NowWeMOVE campaign has expanded to Latin America, with 15,000 MOVE Week events being held there in 2017. Last year, Colombia took part in No Elevators Day and in 2018, we aim for No Elevators Day to spread to even more countries and continents.

If you are in Europe, please contact the NowWeMOVE National Coordinator in your country to find out how you can spread the word about your No Elevators Day activity, or download our free resources here.

For more inquires about the campaign or if you live on another continent and would like to get involved, please contact Campaign Manager Laska Nenova at

Use the #NoElevatorsDay hashtag to share your event and create buzz on social media the last Wednesday of April.
