No Elevators Day - What Happens in Europe

Monday, June 8th, 2015 | PR

Dear coleagues,

On June 5, the first day without elevators in Europe, thousands of people in 20 European countries chose the stairs instead of the elevators. The event was organized by the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) as part of its ongoing campaign NowWeMOVE promoting grassroots sport and physical activity.

Volunteers from 60 cities across Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, France, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia,Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey and United Kingdom closed off elevators and escalators in their workplaces and public spaces to promote stair climbing as a healthy habit that keeps people moving throughout the day. The participation in the events was voluntary and access to lifts was ensured for people with disabilities and medical conditions, as well as for those not willing to participate.

Kind regards,
