On the 1st of June - 31st of August Vilnius University Health and Sport Centre invites academic community – students, lecturers, professors, scientists, administration and other employees – to accept the challenge and try yourself in international, interdisciplinary project „University Summer Challenge 2019“.
The project was born after a pilot project „VU Summer Challenge“ in 2016 for Vilnius University community and the initiative was nominated among three most innovative academic sport projects in Europe.
It's a challenge that was already accepted by 12 universities in the World with regard to physical activity during the Summer of 2019: Kaunas University of Technology, Klaipėda University, Lithuanian Sports University, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Mykolas Romeris University, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Vytautas Magnus University, Šiauliai University and friends from abroad: Universidade de Porto (Portugal) and The Academic College at Wingate (Israel).
On the right side of this page, you can see the list of participating universities.
„University Summer Challenge“ is a pleasant and interesting contest for promoting physical, psychological and social health in the academic community, inviting during the summer to compete with yourself (compare your results yesterday, today and tomorrow), colleagues (maybe ahead of you is your teacher or classmate - do not give up!) and with other departments, universities and even countries. "University Summer Challenge" is a great opportunity to develop a healthy habit of being physically active every day.
Register, participate, note your physical activity on the website during the Summer and contribute to the success of your Team or University! The project focuses on the social snow-ball effect idea that results bring out more results and everyone, who participates, motivates each other and becomes united for a common goal of a healthy life-style!
From the 1st of June, on this website you will find physical activity calculator, various contests and articles, prizes and surprises, charts of yours, your team's, your University's progress, invitations to sport events, videos, photos and the best recipe for the Summer. And now you can already register in the platform and start to prepare for active three months!
