Since 1948, the FISEC has been organising its international sports event ‘The FISEC Games’ each summer in the month of July in one of its member countries. Since 2014 FISEC has been working together with FICEP, also an international sports organisation with at its core the same values as FISEC. In turn, member-countries organise the annual event. In 2020 the city of Duisburg in Germany will host the games, the organisation is a joint effort of FISEC, FICEP and DJK, our German member.
Currently there are 11 European member countries affiliated with FISEC and also Brazil and India
Our Games combine competitive sport / competitions with a number of activities aimed at internationalisation, awareness of cultural similarities and differences and moral issues from our daily lives.
In this context, a Youth Forum is organised in which participants from all countries discuss a contemporary theme. Also there is the FISEC Bazaar where participants from all countries sell small souvenirs that are typical for their home country, to visitors. The money collected will go to a local charity, which is announced beforehand.
The Theme/Slogan of the 2020 games is: Giving the Best of Yourself
