Physical activity for children and young people

Children learn through movement and exercise

We know that physical activity is essential for children’s learning, health and well-being. Movement and exercise in children’s daily lives strengthen motor skills, improves the child’s ability to learn and builds social skills. It can increase the child’s self-esteem, strengthen the child’s relationships and help to improve mental health – something that can equip them to master the challenges that life may offer.

Healthy values from childhood

Right now, more than one in three children (37%) say that they are physically active less than once a week during their school day. Therefore, we want to work for a more physically active everyday life for our school and daycare children and help to ensure that physical activity becomes an entirely natural part of their lives from an early age.
