Why an International Night against Procrastination?

The idea of ​​an “International Long Night against Procrastination” comes from Germany. There, students expressed the need for more support and advice on writing over a longer time, preferably throughout the night. The library at the University of Viadrina in Frankfurt took the initiative to open the library for studies from dusk until dawn, and offered lots of individual support and tutorials by staff with expertise in the scientific writing. Exciting activities such as night walks and yoga were organized, and students were offered coffee and fruit.

This phenomenon has now spread across the world and more and more universities arrange this type of activity. In German it is called Lange Nacht der Aufgeschobenen Hausarbeiten, but we have chosen an easy-to-read version: An International Night against Procrastination or, in Swedish, “Uppesittarkväll för att bli klar”. Support is provided in Swedish and English.
