‘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 and supported by Sport Australia.

We are passionate about driving a movement that will see children and young people around the world moving more and sitting less every day. To achieve this goal, we know that a ‘whole of society’ approach is needed and the purpose of this inaugural Event is to provide a forum for international cross-sector knowledge sharing and collaboration that extends beyond the Event itself.

Our solutions-focused Event program will be informative, thought-provoking and relevant to delegates with a range of child and youth-centric interests including researchers, educators, urban architects, community planners, public health and health promotion professionals, technology developers, marketing and advertising professionals, and government representatives.

The inaugural ‘Movement to Move’ Event will also serve as the occasion for the joint launch of the 2018 AHKA Australian Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Young People and the ‘Global Matrix 3.0’, featuring the Physical Activity Report Cards for Children and Youth from 49 countries belonging to the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance.

The time has arrived to disrupt the status quo on children’s physical inactivity. Hear from thought leaders about how we can tackle a worldwide shift in the status quo and take part in discussions, workshops and think tanks surrounding:
• Responsibilities and accountabilities for instigating, attaining and sustaining physical activity targets across society
• Capitalising on technology (optimising potential while minimising harm)
• Getting the pitch right - marketing physical activity to children
• Corporate Social Responsibility - working together to support children’s physical activity
• Realities, competing priorities and opportunities throughout the Developing World
• Data collection methods, sharing and collaboration

Learn best practice from success stories and innovation from around the globe relating to program design and implementation and listen to what children around the globe have to say about their likes and dislikes when it comes to physical activity.

Expand your network and establish new collaborations as you play your part in the ‘Movement to Move’ to get our kids moving!
