One of SAUNA’s objectives acknowledges the critical role of young people in fostering creative and innovative solutions to current challenges, and in driving positive social change. Our association rolls out activities that incorporate young people and empowers them to participate fully in promoting particular values in their communities. While utilizing sports as a platform, SAUNA supports youth development through physical education, physical activity, and career development. Physical activity is vital to the holistic development of young people, fostering their physical, social and emotional health. The benefits of sport reach beyond the impact on physical well-being and the value of the educational benefits of sport should not be under-estimated.
Preventing the development of obesity among children and the youth is an international health priority.
Providing physical education both inside and outside of schools is crucial in helping young people to learn and develop life skills.
Sport and physical education is fundamental to the early development of children and youth and the skills learned during play, physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people.
