Hibernation is a platform aimed at promoting inactivity as part of a sustainable, healthy lifestyle.

Hibernation aims to encourage the legitimacy of inactivity as part of a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. We do so by creating a platform for exchanging tools, tips and playful interventions.

HiberNation is a community, a cultural movement. Its reach is global while its focus is local.

On the online platform you can find tips for hibernations ranging from 10 minutes to 6 months, practical tools of how to lock down your phone, disconnect your internet and fight the guilt!

I addition you can also pledge your own time or money in exchange for someone else's hibernation, be it a close friend that needs rest or a complete stranger.

Hibernation transcends class, politics, age and gender.
