RWTH aktiv - Moving University


RWTH Aktiv - Moving University

“Moving University” is a project of the University Sports Center to promote health at RWTH. It is supported by Techniker Krankenkasse . Beside the main subject area of physical activity, the project also encompasses relaxation, stress relief and diet.

The aim of the project is the sensitization towards the importance of physical activity and health in everyday (work or student) life as well as the creation of incentives for behavioral change amongst staff and students of RWTH.

The students of RWTH Aachen are the next target group to be moved into the focus of the project. Thanks to the subproject “BottomsUp”, countless initiatives to combat a sedentary lifestyle have been successfully carried out in the past. Next, the University Sports Center wishes to bring more movement into the everyday lives of students. This is to be achieved by the Student-Pausenexpress, amongst other initiatives. The newest offer, the “Vitality Bike”, will also contribute to turning RWTH Aachen University into a truly “active university”.
