British Orienteering is proud to support the Sport and Recreation Alliance #RightToBeActive campaign, which asks all of society to join the call for the government to embed the fundamental right of all children to be active into policy, regulations and legislation.
The campaign aims to place a child’s right to be active on the same footing as their rights to education, shelter and nutrition. The benefits of being physically active are huge. However, shifts in society can mean that children don’t have the same exercise habits as previous generations.
Britain is not active enough. We are the most obese nation in Western Europe, with rates rising faster than any other developed nation.
Statistics show that:
Sport and recreation can help solve many of the biggest threats facing our children. Making it part of their daily lives will make them healthier and happier.
What needs to happen?

Help spread the word about this important initiative by simply signing the Alliance’s petition (https://bit.ly/2xIaR9v) and sharing it with others to help the Sport & Recreation Alliance reach its initial target of 10,000 signatures.
The Sport and Recreation Alliance believes that every child has the fundamental #RightToBeActive. The problem of inactivity among our children and young people is far-reaching and we must work together to solve this crisis. The Alliance is calling on government, the sport sector, schools, communities, families and the public to show that they will not allow this to continue.
Since the petition was created it has gained over 1500 signatures from people who are ready to see a change. However, Sport and Recreation Alliance still need more support to reach their 2500 signature goal.
Please sign and share this petition! Together, we can make a stand and provide a better, healthier future for children across the UK.
