KidActive Ecomodel

Our ecological model illustrates how we work to make a positive and collective impact on every child's health and well-being.  It is based on the principles of an socio-ecological model that illustrate how our social and physical environments and systems affect our well-being. Where we play, learn and live determines our health.  The systems that surround our children on a daily basis affect their opportunities to be active and healthy.  These systems include our family, school, community, government and ecosystem.  Each part interacts and connects to make a whole - the social and physical factors that determine children's health and well-being.

This model shapes how our programs, resources and collaborative projects are developed and implemented.  The consistent goal is to make positive change to the environments and systems that determine every child's opportunity for health.
