Results from the 2016 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth
This webinar is designed to provide participants with an overview of the 2016 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth. The ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth is the most comprehensive assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada. The Report Card synthesizes data from multiple sources, including the best available peer-reviewed research, to assign evidence-informed grades across 12 indicators. Over the years, the Report Card has been replicated in numerous cities, provinces, and countries, where it has served as a blueprint for collecting and sharing knowledge about the physical activity of young people around the world.
The learning objectives of this webinar are to:
- Present results from the 2016 Report Card including grades for each indicator and what that means for Canadian children.
- Highlight key findings, research gaps, and areas of opportunity to improve healthy active living among children and youth.
- Provide recommendations for turning research into action, including providing participants with tools and resources to support the use of the Report Card.
