Children and young people spend too much time sitting still and the consequences are great to physical and mental health. Children who are physically active feel better, experience less stress and are more susceptible to learning. Furthermore, non-active children suffer an increased risk of public health diseases such as obesity and diabetes.
In collaboration with actors within the region and Generation PEP we invite you to a focus day full of inspiration and important dialogues highlighting physical activity among children and young people. Together we can make a difference!
Program 09.00-12.30 Please note that the program will be held in Swedish

What can we do to increase physical activity?
How do we go from small projects to larger collaborations? Local business actors and organisations talk about their experiences, which have had a positive impact on children's movement and health.
Workshop The focus is on cross-collaboration and knowledge sharing to initiate change towards a healthier future.
Lunch We end the day with lunch and the opportunity to network after the workshop.
