Agenda

We have a physical activity crisis: Few pupils meet the minimum recommendation of 60 minutes a day moderate to vigorous physical activity (PA). Not only does this harm their physical health, it poses a threat to their social-emotional well-being and their learning, too. 

So how can schools motivate children to more self-motivated physical activity? A solutions is more thrilling play equipment. 

Join this webinar to learn about the newest research on outdoor play that stimulates pupils’ PA and their social-emotional development, and get 10 tips for active, fun outdoor playgrounds with lasting attraction and play benefits.
