New ParticipACTION campaign urges families to get outside, move, and play

You may have noticed that playgrounds and parks in Canada are getting emptier and emptier. With so much technology at our fingertips, a lot of families are spending less time enjoying outdoor activities. And we all know that when it comes to screens, it’s easy to lose track of time.

ParticipACTION’s Screen time is taking away play time campaign aims to raise awareness about sedentary behaviour and get people thinking about how much time they spend in front of a screen versus in active play. They offer tips for getting everyone in the family, from the youngest babies to teens, off screens and outside.
