For the 3rd year Monash Council and Monash University will be the City in Motion’ for Australia, jointly hosting a major community sporting event from 16th August – 15th November 2018.

The University and the Council will open up their world class sporting facilities to the local community and students, who will be invited to participate in a range of events to promote health and well-being.

The World University Sport body FISU (Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire) has endorsed Monash hosting the event, in recognition of the University’s deep international reach and continuous commitment to building meaningful partnerships with its local communities.

Monash University President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Gardner AO said ‘Monash in Motion’ demonstrated the depth of the University’s engagement with its local municipality:

“There are no boundaries between Monash and our surrounding community. Many of our students and graduates live and work locally and many residents have strong connections with the University.”

“Building significant and deep relationships with all of the communities in which we operate is fundamental to our core ethos at Monash, whether that’s in the local communities around our Australian campuses or with international communities in India, Italy, Malaysia, Indonesia and China.”

“Monash in Motion’ is a wonderful recognition of those relationships and I look forward to September’s event and its focus on healthy living.”

Team Monash Director Martin Doulton outlined the key elements of this year’s ‘Monash in Motion’:

“A fit and healthy community is something we at Monash take very seriously, whether through our globally recognised sporting clubs or through wider initiatives to promote physical and mental well-being. We are thrilled to be joining forces with our partners in Monash Council to share something for everyone, from an e-sport come 'n try night, to a Mega-Swim event to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis to a Water Wise surfing program to encourage water safety amongst our international communities,” Mr Doulton said.
