Today, FISU granted 43 universities involved in its Healthy Campus program with a certification label. Eighteen of them received the "Platinum" label, the highest level of certification. The award ceremony – the first of its kind – took place at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB).
Launched by FISU in May 2020, the Healthy Campus program is a certification process for universities in the field of health and well-being in all its aspects.
FISU has determined 100 criteria with a group of international experts to contribute to most of the sustainable development goals defined by the United Nations.
The program also focuses on criteria such as gender equality, reducing inequalities, increasing inclusion, clean and affordable energy, sustainable community development, responsible consumption and production, climate action, partnerships and synergies between internal and external partners on campus.
“Healthy Campus contributes to a comprehensively healthy, diverse and attractive environment for students,” said FISU Acting President Leonz Eder.
“The formal awarding of the first Healthy Campus labels fills us with gratitude and pride. We are extremely appreciative for the valuable partnership universities have provided. And we are proud to have convinced many stakeholders of the importance of health being much more than the absence of disease,” he added.
Currently, the Healthy Campus program has 94 registered universities in the world.
Host of the ceremony, the ULB was awarded the Platinum label. It is the first Belgian university to receive this award.
