Next workshop on “Active workplace” in Graz

On February 1st, meet us in the Graz city hall from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m for the workshop on “Active workplace: exercise and sport in the company“. EFCS, the city of Graz, and Evaleo organized this event as part of the Pacte + project. 


imageSince we spend around a third of the day at our workplace, we want to focus on the opportunities that can be found.

What is “company sport” and its benefits ? How enable & motivate people to be active and do sport at work? A particular focus will be on the Austrian national approach to this subject with “best practice” examples. The topic of “sport in vocational schools” will also be examined.


Registration: If you are interested, register by email to: sportamt@stadt.graz.at. Participation is free (50 places “first come first serve”).

Venue: City Hall, Mediacenter, Hauptplatz 1

Livestream: The event will also be available in livestream. The link will be on the main page of www.graz.at. Due to a technical problem, the workshop will be broadcast in in english or german, in the speakers’ own language.
