Happy, Healthy, Strong Community.
Kids learning to move and be physically active as part of ordinary life – like going to school or the park or the library – and then inspiring their parents, teachers, principals, neighbors to do the same is, in our opinion, a powerful means to sustainable well-living and community healthfulness.
Independent, happy, confident, ready to learn youth are empowered to be guardians of their health, develop lifelong habits to move more and sit less and be leaders in their neighborhood.
What steps can we take to get kids off the couch, off their screen and outside? How can we reduce childhood obesity, insane car lines at schools, traffic congestion, air pollution and social isolation? Organized sports and recreation are great but 0S3 Movement believes that embedding walking and biking into our daily routine is a significant part of the answer.
0S3 Movement many projects, programs and initiatives focused to engage, empower and excite young people and keep them moving forward.
Change is local. We have developed a grassroots method that recruits, trains and empowers community leaders (Young and young of heart) to take charge and be that change. With the help of these local advocates, 0S3 Movement strives to weave a culture of health into the very fabric of communities so that they can be their best – their healthiest.
We are always seeking partnerships and collaborations in our community to advance this vision. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
