Every year we celebrate the World Suicide Prevention Day on the 10th of September, and this year, to raise awareness of the issue in Slovenia, the University of Primorska organised an event in Ljubljana's Cukrarna Gallery. It was aimed at informing the public about the activities on the occasion and to officially announce the hosting of the 32nd World Congress of the International Association for Suicide Prevention, organised next September by the University of Primorska and IASP.
UP IAM and the Slovene Centre for Suicide Research already joined the "Cycle Around the Globe" campaign and started cycling the length of the Earth, or 40,075 kilometres, joined by cyclists from all over the world.
The campaign aims to raise awareness for suicide prevention efforts around the world in order to reduce the incidence of suicide and suicidal behaviour. We ask our global community to engage with each other and join together to spread awareness and to cycle any distance on any road, track or gym and help us work together to prevent suicide.
From 10 September – 10 October 2022, we are asking you to cycle with us and log your kilometres by filling in the online form. You can share your highlights from your cycling journeys with the community on the Prekolesarimo svet 2022 Facebook event.
