VIVASEDA -Olympic and Paralympic Student Project-


VIVASEDA is Waseda University’s student-led project for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games! We cover a wide range of activities, including planning and holding events related to the Games, posting information such as news about athletes and the Games and event information, and activities related to volunteer management. Our members are divided into three departments: Events, PR, and Volunteer Coordination. We also plan and carry out several projects that can be joined by any department.

Our main objective is for students to gain valuable experience by actively participating in the Games held in Tokyo, and to greatly enhance the Tokyo 2020 Games through the activities. We will do our best by cooperating with institutions outside of the university as well as Waseda University, so that we can excite the Tokyo 2020 Games together. We will work as a bridge between Waseda University and the Olympic and Paralympic Games. We appreciate your understanding and support.

Note: “VIVASEDA” is derived from the Italian word “VIVA! WASEDA”. V V makes W.
