    Climbing is healthy! - Is climbing healthy?
    Climbers naturally consider climbing to be healthy. But what is the perspective of the society? What are health promoting exercises and is climbing one of them? What basic conditions must climbing and bouldering fulfil in order to be socially recognised as health promoting? What are the prospects and market chances for operators of climbing and bouldering facilities in the future health sector? These questions will be considered in the lecture and discussed afterwards.
