ISCA understands sport as an integral part of cultural life. As people manifest their culture through their specific participation in sport, it is important to promote and to deepen a coherent view of sport and culture.

Sport as movement culture is, thus, a field where cultural identity as well as international understanding can be developed.

In the context of Sport and Culture, sport is understood not only as competitive activities and health-related exercises, but also as recreation, pastimes, games and leisure activities.

Sport/Culture is an essential part of education, and a way of educating people to be responsible citizens in their society.

Culture as a way of life includes besides sport and games also traditional customs and festivities, dance, music, song, theatre and other creative and social activities.
