Jack Shakespeare - UK Active
|Duration||53 Minutes 41 Seconds|
|Description||Sports-based programs not only significantly improve the learning performance and overall health of young people, but also provide a platform for them to learn how to cope with competition, adhere to the rules, and be a team player. For one to reap the benefits that come with sports, they need to be actively involved. UKactive seeks to make this a reality by promoting the interests of commercial fitness gyms and community leisure centres. Their goal is to get more people, more active, more often, and to improve the nation’s health by promoting active lifestyles. This Jan 2021 podcast episode features Jack Shakespeare, Director of Children, Young People, Families and Research at UKactive. Jack’s agenda is to address physical inactivity in children and the reasons for it. There are a multitude of reasons for physical inactivity, from money, environment, hunger, or general apathy, and too much screen time. His mantra is to get children to the point where they are physically literate and have spaces to do structured activity as well as self-directed play. For him, a joined-up approach to encouraging physical activity, between government, local authorities, schools and other institutions.
