Abstract: The key ideas of “ActivCampus” are the following: a) It picks up two sorts of CRISIS many members of the University are suffering from: First, a leak of “sense” in what, why and how they are doing their work and how the University is organizing the cooperation between individuals and groups. Secondly, corporeal diseases and imbalances due to working structures that are not healthy for students and employees. b) The network “AktivCampus” invites all members of the University to present their every-day activities already realized without the knowledge of others or activities in planning sorted in five categories: body, arts, crafting, social and sharing. c) Realizing small activities together should motivate the members at the University but should also spread ideas and a kind of spirit into town to start small projects together. My special interest is to discuss if there are already comparable projects elsewhere and to measure the importance of corporeal or bodily based activities for transitions – away from (modern concepts of) sport, beauty discipline and body shaping.
