Certificate "Encouraging Physical Activity in Children" - 2nd session

Certified continuing education - 4 semesters - 20 ECTS

Today, due to a multitude of factors related to societal development, a large proportion of children lack movement.

However, the benefits of physical activity are many. Being active has benefits in many aspects such as physical fitness, weight, emotional health and socialisation.

And besides, being active is fun!
