Practical guidelines for promoting children's physical activity

The practical guidelines for European municipalities to promote an everyday culture of sports among children in their actual form are the result of the working process within the project „You need exercise“. The 28 guidelines are assigned to 7 topic areas that have a determining function in promoting children’s physical activity.

On the conference "Active Cities - Active Children" the practical guidelines for the promotion of children’s physical activity were passed. Within the regulations of the European Commission these guidelines which are also based on already existing guidelines and scientific findings could work as a pioneer for the new sports promotion programme. 

The guidelines provide practical solutions for the implementation of physical activity programmes among children for decision makers in municipalities from the sections sports, youth, health, school as well as sports associations. The guidelines are supplemented with a database, which shows the most successful solutions in Europe.
