VIVASEDA is a volunteer group of Waseda students for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games! Activities cover a wide range of activities, including planning and holding events related to the Games, disseminating information such as news about athletes and the Games and event information, and activities related to volunteer management. Members are divided into three departments: Events, PR, and Volunteer Coordination. We plan and implement several projects that can be joined by any department. (For details, see the activity introduction.)
The main purpose is for the students to gain valuable experience (intangible legacy) by actively participating in the Games held in their home country, and to greatly enhance the Tokyo Games through their activities. We will do our best by cooperating with other institutions outside of the university as well as Waseda University, so that we can excite the Tokyo Games together. We will work as a bridge between Waseda University and the Olympic and Paralympic Games. We appreciate your understanding and support.
“VIVASEDA” is derived from the Italian word “VIVA! WASEDA”. V V make W.
