Encouraging physical activity and combatting air pollution (Bangladesh)

 

In Dhaka, many children are taken to school by car, including students living within walking distance, resulting in air pollution and reduced physical activity.

We are surveying 150 students from three schools to understand their levels of physical activity and how they travel to school. We will then run workshops with them and select 30 of the most promising to develop and run awareness-building campaigns including letter-writing, media and social media. We will work closely with educational institutions and NGOs to communicate about the importance of physical activity and to create more advocates around the country.
