In May 2014 Active Healthy Kids Canada (AHKC) released the 2014 Report Card on the Physical Activity of Children and Youth at the Global Summit on the same theme. For the first time, this Report Card reveals how Canada stacks up against 14 other countries. This comparison highlighted the fact that while Canada has well-developed physical activity infrastructure and programs, our children still score poorly in overall physical activity levels, active transportation and sedentary behaviour.
On December 4, 2014 the Heart and Stroke Foundation will host a webinar to discuss the key results from the Report Card and the Global Summit while focusing in on Active Transportation. Jacky Kennedy from Green Communities Canada will discuss how Active Transportation interventions have great potential to increase overall physical activity levels among kids and the ways in which Canada can improve our grade based on success stories from other countries.
Jennifer McGowan from Metrolinx will bring the discussion back to Ontario and the GTA. She will share the Strategy Roadmap for the Implementation of Province-Wide Coordination on Active and Safe Sustainable Transportation that Metrolinx created in collaboration with stakeholders and encourage everyone to find a way to support the movement for movement.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
