#UseTheStairs on No Elevators Day – and spread the message to #BeActive every day!

03/24/2023 By Maria Malyshkina, ISCA

There is only a month to go before the global No Elevators Day 2023 - a fun and free yearly event aimed at encouraging people to choose the stairs over elevators or escalators and nudge their colleagues and friends to do the same. On 26 April 2023, we invite people all over the world to take the challenge to #UseTheStairs for their health and wellbeing and celebrate the 9th edition of No Elevators Day.

On the last Wednesday of April every year, we celebrate the joy of being active by doing something as simple as using the stairs instead of elevators and escalators.

Why join No Elevators Day?

Having an intense day at the office or school? Switch off, stand up, step up – take a brain break by running up a down a couple of flights.

Spending long hours commuting? Stretch your legs and raise your pulse by taking the stairs instead of escalators – or climb up the escalator instead of standing still.
