Time spent in daily physical activity consisting of sports, active play and active transport to school, and overall physical fitness levels are decreasing, while the prevalence of obesity is increasing around the world. With the mission to improve physical activity in children and youth, The Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance （http://www.activehealthykids.org/）was established in 2014. The Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance is a network of researchers, health professionals and stakeholders who are working together to advance physical activity in children and youth from around the world.
