ENAS Forum and Assembly 2018 - Nijmegan, Netherlands

Welcome to ENAS Forum and Assembly Nijmegen 2018

“Sustainability in University and College Sport – making our future the concern of the present”

Sustainability does not only concern the environment around us, and the impact we have on it. In the business world, the concept involves management of the impact on people, profit and planet alike – a triple bottom line! Under the influence of these sustainability pressures, the university sports services mission has evolved from organizing sports activities to the much broader remit – the development of healthy campus life. The Okanagan International Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Colleges (2015) suggests that: “Health promoting universities and colleges transform the health and sustainability of our current and future societies, strengthen communities and contribute to the well-being of people, places and the planet.”

Your sports service has a social, financial and environmental responsibility. You can contribute to sustainable development in education, research and operational management of your institution. You can support and stimulate sustainable behaviour among staff and students. And you can help develop a sustainable work, study and sports environment in which the impact on our resources continuously decreases.

Through expert presentations and practical sessions, we will understand and address the challenges and opportunities of sustainability in the university and college sports context. Join us to become lean, mean and green in 2018.

About Nijmegen

Nijmegen is situated on the banks of the Waal, a branch of the Rhine in the region of the ‘Great Rivers’, and a mere 10 kilometers from the German border. Of Roman origin (its name derives from ‘Noviomagus’ meaning ‘new market’) the city celebrated its 2000th anniversary in 2005. This makes Nijmegen the oldest city in the Netherlands. Nijmegen was also the imperial residence during the Carolingian period. The ‘Valkhof’ – ‘Falcon’s Court’ – is the highest point of the city overlooking the river. It was once the site of Charlemagne’s castle. From this vantage point, which is now a scenic park, the typically Dutch polder landscape and rolling hills provide a beautiful panorama.

The Great Rivers marked the northern frontier of the Roman Empire, and no doubt the Romans settled here because of the splendid strategic view of enemy territory across the river. For similarly strategic reasons, subsequent kings and other rulers chose Nijmegen as their place of residence.

Until a century ago, Nijmegen was a fortified town, its surroundings the scene of many fierce battles. However, in 1879 the old city defences were torn down, as they posed an increasing obstacle to the city’s prosperity. A period of spectacular growth followed, and within a few decades the railway bridge across the Waal was constructed, and gas, electricity and water mains were installed in the city.

The Second World War is a black page in Nijmegen’s history. On February 22, 1944, allied forces bombed the city by mistake, killing 800 people. A few months later, Nijmegen was liberated following the U.S. airborne landings of ‘Operation Market Garden’, which freed the southern part of the Netherlands on September 17, 1944. Badly damaged in the war, much was done to rebuild the city in the post-war period and a new city centre arose in which the remaining monuments of Nijmegen’s rich history occupy a special position.
