'TSUNAMI OF INACTIVITY'

Students regularly spend 30% of their waking hours at school/university.

And almost SIT!!!!!

  • The average UK student is sitting at school/university for almost 4.5 HOURS A DAY!
  • 8-18 year olds spend an additional 7 HOURS A DAY in front of a screen, regardless of socio-economic status.
  • STUDENTS ARE SITTING 85% OF THEIR WAKING HOURS at school/university, in front of the screen, transportation, doing homework and eating meals!

It’s not only adults whose health may be jeopardized by a sedentary lifestyle.

  •  Incorrect sitting posture on the part of the children themselves
