Congratulations to Dr. Nicholas Kuzik for the release of the article “Climate change is a new hurdle for children’s physical activity levels in Canada”! The article was published on May 15th, 2024 in The Conversation.

“With already low grades for children’s physical activity, climate change is emerging as a new barrier for children and youth to get more active. For instance, the number of weather alerts in Canada is rapidly trending upwards, which could indicate an increased number of days where kids can’t play outside, recesses take place indoors, and sports and school days are cancelled. Events like poor air quality from wildfire smoke, heat waves and heat domes are becoming more frequent during the summer, with climate scientists predicting they will only grow more intense.”
