Projekt Digital tool for increasing physical activity among children


Childhood obesity is a growing problem in our population. According to data from the World Health Organization, 27.5% of children in the Czech Republic were overweight and 9.7% of children were obese in the Czech Republic. (WHO, 2016) More recent data also show that more than a fifth of the population of Czech children aged 11-15 has a problem with their weight. Every seventh child in the Czech Republic is obese, and 4% of them even suffer from obesity of the 3rd degree, as is defined accordingly to the body mass index. According to the World Health Organisation's 2018 survey, Lithuania is the most obese country in Europe with an obesity rate of 26.3%.

The main goal of TOOL4CHILDREN is to contribute, in cooperation with the Czech Republic partner AgEnDa z.s., to develop an app to promote physical activity in order to change the attitudes of 11-17 year olds towards physical and mental health and to develop the right skills for a healthy lifestyle.The need for the project was driven by the low physical activity levels and poor mental health of school- age children. The project will contribute to improving the academic, emotional, behavioral, health of target group.

The main project activities:

  1. Project management and implementation;
  2. Developing a physical activity app;
  3. Organizing transnational project meetings;
  4. Dissemination and sustainability.

Results: A physical activity app has been developed to help bring together like-minded people who want to exercise in their neighborhood, promote the use of technology for health, increase physical activity, and to foster cooperation between different social groups. All the materials and tools created within the project will be made available to the bigger public after the conclusion of the project, in order to contribute to obesity across Europe.
