Event and Activity ideas

During past years, Thrive has hosted a wide variety of events and activities to help build positive mental health for all. Watch for some of these during the next Thrive week or try them throughout the year:

A station or booth set-up for passersby to indulge in making a craft (e.g. cards, stress balls, goal setting bracelets, Thrive pledge buttons, trail-mix, or parfaits). To try crafting any day this year, check out the UBC Beads and Crafts Club.

A club comprised of people who are dedicated to working out regularly as a group. Exercising with others can be a great motivator to stay on track with an exercise regimen.

A group trip or tour to one of the many attractions around Vancouver, including the UBC Farm, Museum of Anthropology, or off-campus locations such as the Grouse Grind is a chance to stretch your legs, change up your day-to-day schedule, and get to know your group and community better.

A friendly competition modeled after the Iron Chef franchise. Invite others to compete using their most nutritious recipes. Share the results and recipes with the audience.

A documentary or movie screening can be paired with a discussion among friends. Be sure to check out the UBC Film Society Facebook page for movie events and screenings.

For UBC Vancouver, food can be collected for AMS Food Bank or Greater Vancouver Food Bank. For UBC Okanagan, food can be collected for UBCO Food Exchange or the Central Okanagan Food Bank.

A space on an office wall for people to place notes of gratitude and appreciation for others.
