The Sport and Recreation Alliance has launched a campaign to place a child’s fundamental right to be active on the same footing as rights to education, shelter and nutrition. With 80% of girls and 77% of boys failing to meet the national recommended level of activity, concerns have been about the health and wellbeing of our children and young people. The Alliance has launched a campaign around the fundamental right of all children to be active. The #RightToBeActive campaign asks those across society, including parents, to join the call for government to embed the fundamental right of all children to be active in policy, regulations and legislation.
