Great news!

I am so happy the share the news that today a Position Statement has been launched in Canada, that I have had the pleasure to be a part of developing! See the Position Statement here:


It is a part of the Canadian Report Card of this year!

The Position Statement is based in our work on two systematic reviews published in these two articles:

What is the Relationship between Risky Outdoor Play and Health in Children? A Systematic Review

What Is the Relationship between Outdoor Time and Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour, and Physical Fitness in Children? A Systematic Review

…and a process paper describing the process of developing the Position Statement: Review: Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play

It is all open access, so enjoy reading!

This has been such an interesting collaboration for a foreigner like me in a Canadian context, – thanks to all my collaborators!

  1. Love the position statement leaflet! Looking forward to reading through the rest. As early years professionals the statement “Be influential” really resonates for me – we not only need to follow this approach in our setting we need to actively promote it. Leaflets like this are so readable clearly identifying responsibilities and benefits. Ideal for getting the point across. Thanks Jane 🙂
