Saskatchewan in motion created the 30-30-30 model to encourage a shared approach to providing physical activity for kids. Saskatchewan in motion recommends kids achieve the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity by participating in 30 minutes of physical activity at home, in the community and at school. This presentation focuses on the 30 minutes of physical activity in the community.

  • Community leaders and champions can ensure opportunities for physical activity exist in their communities by: Ensuring that physical activity actions are integrated into official community plans. Ensuring that municipal policy is reviewed and developed so that it determines responsibility and dedicates capacity for increasing physical activity opportunities. Ensuring that there are active and safe routes for children and youth to choose active forms of transportation to where they live, learn and play.
  • Does your community have a long term plan that includes physical activity actions? Call your community administrator or talk to your local council members to find out if your official community plans include physical activity actions. Ask if there are any future opportunities to provide input to the plans. Don`t forget to ask when the plans get reviewed! It is important for future generations that municipalities have a plan to ensure physical activity is a priority in their community for all ages, especially our children and youth !
  • Can the kids you care about walk, cycle, skateboard or roller blade to places they have to go? Can they use active transportation to get to school, after school activities, the corner store or to their friends houses? As a community, it is your responsibility to ensure that this can happen. Ask yourself, do we keep the sidewalks clear in the winter? Do we have safe crossings in neighborhoods to get to parks, playgrounds and to homes? Can kids choose active forms of transportation such as skateboarding to get around?
  • We need health-minded public policy to ensure sustainable action to increase physical activity for our kids. Consider the impact on physical activity when making decisions on behalf of the citizens of our community. For example – consider the impact on physical activity when making decisions on street and sidewalk clearing or recreation fees and charges. Is someone in our community taking responsibility for increasing physical activity? Are they supported with policy statements like a job description or community mandate?
