The first phase of the campaign in Slovenia will focus on conducting surveys to identify barriers to physical activities in children aged 7-12 living in selected low-income urban neighbourhoods. Eight schools have already been chosen to participate, covering around 1,000 children.
Phase two of the campaign in Slovenia, planned for the second half of 2016, is proposed to consist of practical interventions selected based on the survey results, with the aim of removing the identified barriers and creating new physical activity opportunities.
Children in the City has already been successfully implemented in Romania and activities are ongoing in Spain. Four festivals were also organized in the UK during summer 2015.
Download the free Children in the City toolkit for teachers and parents and promote physical activity in your own school or home.
