Active Healthy Kids Australia (AHKA) is a collaboration of physical activity researchers from across Australia who share a common interest in increasing the physical activity levels of all young Australians. The vehicle we use to help increase awareness and drive this need for change is the Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Young People.
‘Movement to Move: Global Insights to Get our Kids Moving’ is proudly presented by Active Healthy Kids Australia (AHKA) and the University of South Australia (UniSA) in association with the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance.
This landmark Event will serve as a joint platform for the launch of the ‘Global Matrix 3.0’ featuring the Physical Activity Report Cards for children and youth from over 50 member countries of the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance, in addition to the launch of the 2018 AHKA Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Young People. Also importantly, the Event will serve as a forum for engagement with key stakeholder and industry organisations and groups, both nationally and internationally, who can take the findings from the Global Matrix 3.0 and work together to develop solutions in our collective drive to get children around the world moving more everyday.
We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Adelaide with stunning beaches on our doorstep and rolling hills and vineyards in our backyard.
AHKA advocates for a coordinated national response to the current physical inactivity pandemic. There is no single solution to this problem. In order to see real improvement in physical activity levels we need a united effort across: government, non-government organisations, communities, sporting organisations and groups, schools, teachers, parents, coaches, friends, families, and children themselves. Physical activity needs to be prioritised every day, and it should not be viewed as something we feel like we should do, rather it should be viewed as something we all want and choose to do for fun, enjoyment, and better health and wellbeing.
