Global CIVIS Days: Apply to participate in the Panathlon in Athens

The CIVIS Alliance, in which Stockholm University is a participant, is committed to addressing the greatest societal challenges of our time. At this year's Global CIVIS Days in Athens, the open activity will focus on the power of physical activity to support social inclusion - both within the CIVIS Alliance and across society. Participation is open to students and staff of all partner universities.

Panathlon CIVIS Days 2022

It is well known that physical activity can be a means for social integration and inclusion. Positive experiences of physical activity can be a vehicle to reduce inequalities for all people, irrespective of their gender, (dis)abilities, age, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, etc. Sport really can build a better society and a better world.

This is why CIVIS is organising a Panathlon* for students and staff across the CIVIS Alliance. Join the event and take this great opportunity to meet fellow members of the CIVIS community and be a creative force, sharing expertise and bringing your innovative ideas to life!

*Panathlon is an ancient Greek word, consisting of:

    pan (=every)
    athlon (=prize, race, effort, rivalry).
