International HESE workshop in Copenhagen

Copenhagen 18-19 March 2012

It is our pleasure to invite you to our first (HESE) Health Enhancing Sport Exercise workshop.


 We develop the HESE program to raise awareness, to motivate and to offer practical support for ISCA member organizations to develop and improve national programs for goal-oriented health promotion and prevention through sports and physical activities.


We will, together with HESE members, take a stand and create an image for ISCA to become acknowledged as a competent and powerful partner with regard to health promotion and healthcare inside and outside the sports system. It is important to co-operate with other international organizations to develop and carry out programs and projects within "health and sport" with the objective of building an international network for this field of action.


The workshop will take place in Copenhagen connected to SPORTVISION2012 Conference, which will be held from the 19-20March. We encourage you to take part in both events.

Quality criteria of health enhancing sport exercise programs

The proceeding in this workshop will be based on the definition of HESE and its quality parameter, outlined in the presentation of Prof. Dr. Walter Brehm (attachment).


We invite all HESE members to present HESE examples and to exemplify the implemented quality parameter. Further on we’ll strive for an agreement on common quality parameter for exercise programs and to discuss the possibilities for an 'ISCA Quality Certificate'.


We also invite to this workshop partners with interest in this field of HESE, even if they had not been at the kick-off event in Paris in October 2011.


The HESE workshop will give you possibility to expand your networks, create valuable alliances and have opportunity to hear good examples from other Sport for all Associations.


We look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen!

Kind regards,


Herbert Hartmann

ISCA Vice President
