EUSA celebrates #LetsIDUS today
The 7th edition of the International Day of University Sport (IDUS) is being celebrated this fall across the globe, and especially honoured today, on September 20.
As every year since 2016, when the International Day of University Sport (IDUS) was proclaimed by the United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organisation (UNESCO), this day aims to create links between universities and their local communities through sport, physical activity, and healthy living, taking the leading role. The #LetsIDUS initiative presents an opportunity to share knowledge on key issues relating to the development of sport, to improve awareness of the importance of sport in educational institutions and showcase the work of university sport bodies.
The International Day of University Sport is celebrated across the world today on September 20, with the EUSA office joining in the celebration from Ljubljana, Slovenia.
This year the European University Sports Association (EUSA) celebrated the 2022 edition of IDUS by having EUSA Office team participating in an enjoyable hike to the Rožnik hill, that started in the morning together with the joint forces of the students and representatives from the Sports Association of the University of Ljubljana and the University of Ljubljana.
On the way to reach the destination point, which was the top of Rožnik Hill, the participants had the chance to meet each other, share information about their work, goals, initiatives, projects and plans regarding the development of university sport.
Besides celebrating the International Day of University Sports, this activity was meant to serve as a networking and connection link between the students and the present organizations, to share key information, knowledge and open possibilities for the students, to join the programs and projects.
IDUS activities will continue and carry through the upcoming weeks, combining with the upcoming European Week of Sport which is celebrated every year from September 23-30. EUSA will be celebrating the upcoming European Week of Sport with a few sport activities, foreseen to be happening during the EUSA Convention in Kranjska Gora starting on Thursday, 22nd to 25th of September. On 23rd of September, we will make sure we also celebrate the day of Slovenian Sport.
