"Saddle up for the climate" - University of Kassel takes part in the bicycle kilometer collection competition

Under the inspiring motto "Saddle up for the climate", the Verkehrsclub Deutschland (VCD) is launching a nationwide bicycle kilometer collection competition at selected universities and vocational schools from the beginning of April to the end of June 2024 in the project "DIY: Make your own traffic turnaround", in which the University of Kassel is also participating!

As a member of the university, you are invited to take part in the competition and make an active contribution to promoting cycling and protecting the environment.

The format is primarily aimed at students, but employees are also welcome to join the competition and pedal together for the climate.
Taking part is easy: simply download the Naviki app:

After registering in the app and assigning it to the University of Kassel, you can record the routes you have covered by bike.
All further information on the organization and in particular on downloading the app can be found at the following link:

It should be noted that employee-only teams must be identified as such. The best way to do this is to use a unique team name - e.g. by adding the abbreviation "MA" - so that it then reads: "Team name xy (MA)". If employees are part of a student team, explicit identification is not necessary. Employee-only teams are also excluded from the team prize draw, but they also collect kilometers for the university through their participation and benefit from the special prize opportunities for the entire university.

The winning team can expect a high-quality bike box from Paul Wolff for the campus. There is also a lighting set from SIGMA SPORT and other goodies to be won.

We look forward to a lively participation! If you have any questions, please contact the Green Office team.
