The Polytechnic of Leiria invited us to participate on the International Week that took place from 9 – 13 May in Portugal.
This was a thematic week that also included an Open Staff Week on the theme of mental, physical, and emotional health. We were able to attend workshops that focused on promoting a true wellness culture among students, teachers and staff:
Exercise and Health: after all, how to get the best of both worlds?
Positive Mental Health Promoting Behaviors
Healthy Campus / Going out, “cleaning” in
The influence of a good spirit in our lives – B WELL, Active and Inclusive
Frisbee sports and the Spirit of the Game (SOTG)
Beyond the Open Staff Week, the Polytechnic of Leiria intended to promote sectorial meetings between peers (international officers, professors, staff in general) and organized at same time cultural events, a networking fair, visits to their Faculties and Laboratories and some sightseeing tours to highlight the Institution and their region internationally. This event definitely pinpointed once more the Polytechnic of Leiria as a promoter of global conversation, and as a builder of an exceptional international community.
The organizer gathered a diversified group of nationalities and representation from various categories of staff.
This event was an excellent opportunity to network in campus and discover future opportunities for further projects, research and more ways to keep connected!
