There are hundreds of different challenges you can run on HeiaHeia - here's an example of one of the most popular

Around the World

Around the World is one of HeiaHeia's most popular challenges. It takes organisations, individuals and teams around the world for six weeks to collect wellbeing points. The goal of the challenge is suitable for everyone and it's really easy to take part.

Getting started with HeiaHeia was almost as easy as pressing a button.

Participation is easy

To participate, use the HeiaHeia mobile app or the browser version:

- The HeiaHeia app works as a pedometer - your phone is all you need
- Participants can also connect a smart device (Fitbit, Garmin, Polar, etc.) to HeiaHeia and the steps measured by the device will be automatically transferred to HeiaHeia
- participants can also log their steps manually. 

Physical activity:
- minutes can be conveniently logged  using the HeiaHeia app
- if the participant has connected a smart device (Fitbit, Garmin, Polar, etc.), the minutes are automatically transferred to HeiaHeia.

Micro actions: logged using the HeiaHeia app.

Encouragement/cheers: participants can cheer their friends' performances in the app's news feed.


Easy participation

It's more fun together

Participants can form teams and encourage each other, making participation even more fun. You can also participate without sharing your achievements with others - everyone can decide what motivates them.

- Creating a team: participants can create their own team and invite colleagues to join them.
- Joining a team: participants can join a team that has already been set up.
- Participating without a team: you can also participate without being part of a team.

A team must have at least two members to be visible on the map and in the leaderboards. (In some other HeiaHeia challenges, teams are already set up.)
