CEU joins Lebenlauf

October 12, 2020

A team of CEU students joined the Lebenlauf Charity Run on October 4th at Kurpark Oberlaa, one of the most beautiful and largest parks in Vienna. The event was in advocating for an open refugee policy , supporting asylkoordination Austria in its work in informing, networking and advocating for the rights of refugees.

This CEU Initiative was supported by the Community Engagement Office at CEU. CEU has always stood by refugee protection and open refugee policy. Community engagement is another key component of CEU’s mission to foster an open society. By encouraging and supporting the individual and collective efforts of its community members, CEU helps identify and address social challenges and issues of public concern.

One of the participants of the ten member CEU Team ,  Zita Barcza-Szabó recounted,

I think I can write on behalf of all the participants that it was a great and well-organized event. Even though the track was quite challenging, we all enjoyed it and were happy to make it.
