The Sedentary Behaviour Research Network (SBRN) has just launched International School-Related Sedentary Behaviour Recommendations for Children and Youth through the International Journal of Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity. The project was led by Dr. Travis Saunders and Dr. Mark Tremblay and several other current and former HALOites were actively involved.
These evidence-based recommendations provide guidance on ways to maximize the benefits and minimize the harms of school-related sedentary behaviours. They are based on the best available evidence, expert consensus, and stakeholder input. The recommendations have already been translated into more than a dozen languages.
