Last but not least, we have our final shortlisted institution: Tilburg University.

Their project is called ‘Tilburg University Vitality’ focusing on creating a healthier and happier work force.

HR and the sports center made a plan to mould a passive way of sports participation into a vitality program, which is more than just sport, and promote this actively.

Funding was quickly arranged once it was viewed how successful the program could be when all the individual elements were grouped together.

After a successful pilot, the Executive Board have extended the funding for five years ensuring a positive future for ‘Tilburg University Vitality’.

They have presented to every department in the University, acquired ambassadors and also organised a ‘Health Week’ with a variety of activities and more.

So that completes our shortlist of ENAS Award finalists, don’t forget that all delegates at the ENAS Forum & Assembly will be invited to vote following presentations of each project.

ENAS Award Finalist: University of Potsdam

The next finalist on the shortlist for the ENAS Award 2018 is the University of Potsdam.

Their project is called ‘cleanUP’ and the focus is on environmental protection while also ensuring that the outdoor sporting facilities of the city are as clean as possible.

Climate change and pollution brought the awareness for environmental protection back in to their minds.

As plastic waste is present everywhere, cleanUP encouraged the community to take responsibility. Through the university network, they invited as many people as possible to volunteer cleaning up the city outdoor sports locations.

80 volunteers walked through Potsdam or paddled upon the waters. They were able to collect almost 7.5 tons of waste throughout the initiative

The aim is to implement an annual cleanUP event and furthermore involve other institutions, like sports clubs, kindergartens, schools and authorities to come on board and spread the mission.

We will be showcasing our last finalist tomorrow, Tilburg University.
