ParticipACTION Physical Activity Report Card for Children and Youth and the Global Matrix 3.0: Evaluation and Strategic Harmonization

Global levels of childhood physical activity are declining while sedentary behaviours are rising, leading to the global increase in non-communicable disease. The aim of this project is two-fold: 1. to contribute to childhood physical activity promotion in Canada and worldwide, and 2. to contribute to the international diffusion of the scientific knowledge concerning childhood physical activity. This will be achieved via the optimization of the development of the Global Matrix 3.0; the evaluation of the Global Matrix 3.0; and the amplification of findings from the 2018 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth. This internship is in direct accordance with the overreaching goal of ParticipACTION, a non-profit organization, which aims to promote healthy active living among Canadians.
