Global Week - Cardiff Met International

Check out the timetable below to view all events that are taking place.

Global Week Active Challenge

Healthy University LogoIn collaboration with Healthy University, Global Week will see a launch of an active challenge where staff and students are encouraged to log their physical activity to discover how far Cardiff Met can travel the world in a week. All members of the university are encouraged to log how many miles that they walk, run, cycle or row throughout the week using an online system. At the end of the week, the total distance will be calculated to discover our final destination. Will it be France? India? Or could we even make it as far as Australia?! Come on Cardiff Met! 

Add your physical activity here!

We're also trying to raise money for an international charity via this activity. Please give whatever you can via our Just Giving page. All money raised will go to Unicef.
