Active Design in Schools

Active Design

Active Design in schools is using spaces like the asphalt and grass (which most schools have) to design activities where children can be active.

Every child deserves a healthy, positive school environment. Children’s physical, emotional and social development all benefit from daily physical activity and healthy eating. Better fitness levels are also associated with better academic performance. Because students spend so much of their day at school, schools have a unique opportunity to increase physical activity and healthy eating opportunities for students.
