  • Datum: 30.04.2024
  • Do you enjoy sports and want to do something good at the same time? Then the JUNKMILE project of the university sports department is the right place for you. Join in and register for the workshop dates! The JUNKMILE team and our HSP running group instructor Jule Hedwig have developed an exciting practical concept for you.

    Combining Runners High and Helpers High systematically and interactively with community and environmental protection? That's exactly our idea behind the JUNKMILE project. In recent years, the sport of plogging, which involves jogging, hiking or walking while collecting garbage, has become very popular. So far, plogging has been characterized by unsystematic, spontaneous actionism without in-depth organization. Our aim with the university sports JUNKMILE project is to create an interactive platform that motivates plogging in various ways and structures and documents plogging.

    Project idea

    The new trend sport of plogging is a combination of jogging and collecting garbage. It offers great potential for combining environmental protection, sport and social interaction. In order to develop this potential, there is currently a lack of a group of athletes, a platform for exchange and structured organization. The JUNKMILE university sports project aims to provide the solution. Within this project, an online platform is being developed that enables exchange, tracks and coordinates plogging activities, brings people together and motivates them to plog, and keeps Karlsruhe clean. With the JUNKMILE project, we want to motivate people to do sports, socialize, protect the environment, keep our campus and Karlsruhe clean and have fun at the same time.

    The project is part of the GRIP Challenge SPORT - Moving Sustainably. GRIP, the platform for the environment and community, is made up of the Naturefriends Youth Germany and the adh. GRIP is funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).
