Education is not meant for profit but for the benefit of society and the public. As a Social Responsibility Initiative, Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth (CVV) is organising a three-day webinar on Enhancing Health Behaviour for Wellbeing.

Social responsibility initiatives materialise only through the active participation of society and the public alike. Research reveals that health and education are inextricably linked to each other as well as with other factors such as poverty and income level. This is evident in the importance that the United Nations Millennium Development Goals attach to education and health in setting out their development targets.

Education has the power to enhance not only the economic prosperity of a country but also the health index. Following the third goal of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030, that is Good Health and Wellbeing, CVV is planning a series of activities to develop a guideline for promoting health in schools that will ensure continuous and committed intervention from policymakers, governments and academicians regarding the importance of promotion of health in schools and the restructuring of the curriculum accordingly.

Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. To ensure good health, one must eat light, breathe deep, indulge in moderation, cultivate cheer and keep up an interest in life. Therefore, good health practices are necessary for the all-round development of a person. Good health behaviour becomes relevant among students in the present scenario.

The outbreak of new diseases is often due to the unscientific and unethical handling of research. Misconception about the concept of health and hygiene creates conflict in the minds of people. The socio-cultural belief has a direct correlation with the treatment-seeking behaviour of a person. Therefore, clear perception about health and hygiene practices is inevitable for the smooth functioning of the individual as well as society. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the world thinking about advanced health practices. Considering the above scenario, this webinar focuses on various dimensions of health and hygiene practices to allow the young generation to develop healthy living styles. This three-day webinar is a step towards achieving good health and wellbeing which will be a preface to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal.


  • To highlight the significance of health and hygiene practices and health promotion at the school level.
  • To create an understanding of the importance of nutrition and exercise for health and wellbeing.
  • To enhance awareness of the body, body movements and personal cleanliness, health and hygiene practices.
