05 Dec Active Healthy Kids Australia Establishes Youth Advisory Council (Updated)
In order to take the physical activity conversation to the kids themselves, Active Healthy Kids Australia (AHKA) has established the AHKA Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The YAC, comprising of 16 children and young people from around Australia aged 8 to 16 years, have met with the AHKA team once per month since August to discuss all things with regards to physical activity and being a physically active child. The YAC are also assisting AHKA to develop an online kids physical activity survey that they will launch early 2018. Active Healthy Kids Australia is very grateful for the insightful discussions had so far with the YAC and will be using their ideas to inform future research and engagement activities.
