ISCA and WHO Europe join forces to bring European Immunization Week and No Elevators Day together



ISCA and the WHO Regional Office for Europe are joining forces again to promote European Immunization Week and No Elevators Day by turning UN City in Copenhagen into an interactive learning and activity zone on Wednesday 24 April.

 

The fun event is to celebrate small steps for disease prevention, which can make a big difference in protecting your health and well-being, in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 3.

 

Many surprises are being prepared for the day, the main activity being an exciting treasure hunt where participants can learn more about immunization and health while being physically active and winning fantastic prizes. There will also be a breathtaking parkour demonstration at the lobby at 12:00 and 13:00.

 

Both events focus on the small steps people can take to improve their health through prevention. 24 April is the first day of European Immunization Week (EIW), a campaign which works to ensure that every one receives the vaccines they deserve in order to create a future free from vaccine-preventable diseases. At the same time, No Elevators Day is a free and global initiative to raise awareness and promote the benefits of incorporating physical activity into your everyday life, by promoting the use of the stairs instead of the elevator.
