Human Kinetics is pleased to support the efforts of Active Healthy Kids Canada, and the much anticipated upcoming international event: 2014 GLOBAL SUMMIT ON THE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY OF CHILDREN, May 19-20, 2014, in Toronto, Canada.
This summit will bring together leading researchers and those who are working to resolve the growing childhood physical inactivity crisis. Anyone whose work touches physical activity for children, including researchers, practitioners and policy-makers, should count this among the must-attend events for 2014.
Highlights will include the showcasing of several nations’ physical activity report cards - sharing both methodology and results. And those who attend the summit will be elemental in coordinating global surveillance of physical activity and sedentary behaviours of children; sharing of current best practice programs and interventions to increase childhood physical activity and decrease sedentary behaviour; and developing a first-ever global matrix of grades for the influences on children’s physical activity levels.
If your work encompasses child and youth physical activity consider joining their mailing list now to receive a summit invitation and to be a part of this leading global network.
