Joy of Exercise since 1970 - Anniversary Exhibition

Jan 13 - Mar 20, 2020 at Liikunta (L building), 3rd floor

The exhibition Joy of Exercise since 1970 presents the 50th anniversary of the Academic Sports of Jyväskylä, former University Sports, from the 1970s to the present.

The University Sports was established in 1970 as part of the study services of the University of Jyväskylä.

The goal was to promote the physical fitness of university students and staff through the widest possible range of physical activity, and to provide a fun and refreshing balance between study and work.

Since the 1970s, the supply of University Sports, now known as Academic Sports of Jyväskylä, has diversified and expanded enormously, while the focus of activities has shifted from soccer to group sports.

The exhibition brings together various sports equipment and objects from different phases of higher education and seeks to highlight the changes and popular sports that have taken place in higher education.

The Science Museum has taken part in the exhibition, which is open January 13 - March 20, 2020 on the 3rd floor of the Sports Building (L) of the University of Jyväskylä. Free entry.
