This year is the 15 anniversary edition of the Viruskenner project. Over all these years Viruskenner is and has been active in Indonesia, Senegal, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands with more than 30.000 participants 

Raising awareness, responsibility and commitment to benefit your personal health, a healthy environment and a commitment to planet earth where biodiversity is preserved for future generations. It’s the circle of life in which we as humans are key actors. Lifestyle and behavior are the key elements. 

A warm welcome to all students from Italy, Surinam and the Netherlands participating in the 15th anniversary Viruskenner edition. The coming months you will be introduced in the magic world of viruses and infectious diseases. You will learn about viruses, how do they spread, about prevention, lifestyle and hygiene 

Viruskenner; knowledge as antivirus is our slogan. 

You are becoming experts in the  field of prevention of  the spread of infectious diseases. Think, dream, be curious and create new tools to spread the information people need to prevent getting sick and the spread of viruses. Learn about responsibility, if I protect myself I’ll also protect you and together we take care for a healthy environment. A healthy environment is the corner of the earth.  Learn about the one health approach, which means that you think about human, animal and environmental aspects, when it concerns the spread of viruses.  And don’t forget ‘simple often is the best’. Simple tools and methods, easy to implement and use,  often are the most effective with the highest societal impact. 

In the course of the project we will organize a masterclass in January 2024 on infectious diseases and there will be an exciting international final day in April 2024 with the best teams presenting for an international jury.  Just go for it and visit the Viruskenner website to find information and learn to know your coach.
