Shaping the new generation of active kids

Date: Friday, 28 September 2018 10:00 - 13:00

Venue: La Tricoterie 158, rue Théodore Verhaegen 1060 Saint-Gilles  |  City: Bruxelles

Active kids are healthier, happier and more successful; however, today’s kids are part of the least active generation in history. So how can we turn that around?

We know that the first ten years of life are critical for laying the foundation for future active behaviors. This is why quality coaching and positive experiences with sport in school help children stay active. But how do we encourage primary schools to give more importance to physical activity and help kids reach their best potential? How can we work together to make a difference?

Sport and Citizenship, together with Nike and FESI, are happy to invite you to an inspiring session with the leaders in the field from government, education and sport. Join us to discuss ways forward in creating a more active generation.
