Health promotion through sport and movement

As an educational institution with its sports and exercise programs, University Sports assumes an important role in the area of health promotion. As such it has cofounded and heavily influenced the development of health promotion and health promoting structures at RWTH. As well as providing a varied offering of courses and the Pausenexpress, University Sports promotes everyday movement and activity for students and employees through a variety of projects (Currently: “Moving University” and “Active Campus Europe”).

University Sports works closely with Operational Health Management in many areas of health promotion. Schemes like the Health Day in May 2017 and the Step Counter Team Challenge have already been implemented as part of this cooperation.
