AHKGA Celebrates its 10th Anniversary!

Today, May 21st, 2024, the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance (AHKGA) is celebrating its 10th Anniversary!

The AHKGA was established in 2014 with a mission to power the global movement to get kids moving through thought leadership, knowledge translation and mobilization, capacity building, and advocacy. This is facilitated by sustainable partnerships and cross-sectoral collaborations that enable best-practice exchanges, networking and cross-fertilization.
