ALR2018 will be held February 11-14, 2018 in Banff, Alberta, Canada.
The Challenge: Regular physical activity can reduce children’s risk of obesity and improve their classroom performance, but many schools provide few opportunities for students to be active.
Make an impact: Schools can provide excellent opportunities for children to be physically active, including through physical education, regular recess, and access to physical play and exercise spaces during non-school hours and in the summer.
What the findings are about: This synthesis summarizes the substantial and growing body of evidence about different ways to promote children’s physical activity in schools.
Abbreviated fact sheets are available that highlight the research synthesis' main findings.
Our transportation and physical activity infographic translated into Spanish.
Active Living Research translates and disseminates evidence to advocates, policy-makers and practitioners aimed at preventing childhood obesity and promoting active communities.
