2020 - the year, which brought us unexpected surprise. Do you remember its beginning? We enjoyed life and achieved our goals. Suddenly, the pandemic of coronavirus set our lives on pause. We have adapted to a new way of life. All the people around the world started to feel confusion, anxiety, lack of confidence in the future more often. And students are no exception.
According to the NU Institutional Research and Analytics «Fall 2020 Remote Learning Survey Report», over 70% of students feel fear and anxiety, and about 40% have experienced various degrees of depression. This is evidenced by world statistics: mental health in world universities is deteriorating from year to year. For 5 years, the number of mental illnesses has increased 3 times.
In this regard, the theme of the event was chosen by the organizers not by chance. Within 24 hours, the participants had to develop measures to develop a culture of caring for the physical and mental health of NU students.
The ideas of creative crews were evaluated by honorable members of jury:
- Rakhimov Bakhtiyar - General Manager of DSA
