Special edition newsletter: In this special edition ISCA newsletter, we kick-off No Elevators Day celebrations around the world, starting with Australia, and offer new learning opportunities with a Europe-China exchange.

Today's No Elevators Day the most international yet!

The fifth No Elevators Day is under way, as physical activity promoters in 40 countries and five continents are sealing off lifts and escalators in their buildings or public places to encourage more people to be active. As the globe turns, this year’s No Elevators Day has already started in Australia and will finish in the US and Latin America. 

Countries participating for the first time include Costa Rica, Peru, Georgia, India, Lebanon, Oman, Norway and Zimbabwe. Participation in No Elevators Day is voluntary and both event organisers and participants are encouraged to share their stair climbs on the day with the hashtags #NoElevatorsDay (UnDíaSinAscensores in Spanish speaking countries) and #TakeTheStairs.

ISCA is also partnering with WHO Europe and European Immunization Week to turn UN City in Copenhagen into an interactive learning and activity zone as a No Elevators Day flagship event. The initiative – and the combination of these two campaigns – is a unique example of a partnership between an intergovernmental institution and a civil society organisation.

Find an event near you or share your climb on social media #NoElevatorsDay
