Development of the Global Matrix 4.0 Physical Activity Report Card Grades for Children and Youth

Physical inactivity is a growing global health crisis, with childhood physical inactivity being of particular concern. The Global Matrix 4.0 Physical Activity Report Cards for Children and Youth is an initiative aimed at promoting global childhood physical activity through international collaborations. The goal of this project is to further the global promotion of childhood physical activity by contributing to the development of the Global Matrix 4.0. To achieve this goal the intern will create documents detailing the development process methods of the Global Matrix 4.0, develop an evaluation protocol and related documents for the Global Matrix 4.0, support communication between leaders and Report Card teams, and create resource documents for countries registering for participation in the Global Matrix 4.0. The partner organization, the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance, is the organizer of the Global Matrix 4.0 and will benefit directly from the productivity associated with the intern’s project.
