Activity Week for Danish Children

Oct 09, 2015

In this week a campaign named "Hej, skal vi lege?" ("Hi, come and play with me") has been set in motion in the Danish kindergartens. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage children to play and move around a lot (more).

This campaign follows in the wake of many warnings from e.g. Statens Institut for Folkesundhed (National Institute of Public Health) demonstrating that 31% of Danish children face problems with their motor abilities. This figure is backed by staff in Danish kindergartens.
