Less Sitting is Better! Updated 2019 Toolkit Now Available!

The OSPAPPH Executive and Sedentary Behaviour Working Group are excited to share the updated ‘Less Sitting is Better’ campaign, an evidence-informed and comprehensive campaign targeting adults.

The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness about sedentary behaviour in adults and how they can counter sedentary behaviour throughout the day. The campaign consists of a detailed guide and a series of Social Media Posts (with accompanying images) that can be used on a variety of social media platforms. The campaign also includes a web-based/printable infographic that health units can use on their websites, share via email or print to distribute.  The infographic has been prepared in French, English & Chinese.

Your health unit can participate in the campaign by using the handy campaign guide (links below) prepared by the SB Working Group.  The guide provides access to all the campaign materials – including timelines, suggested posts, and a preview and access to the accompanying images. The guide is also available in French and the accompanying images are available in English, French, and Chinese.  The images have been saved on OSPAPPH’s Google Drive and links to the images are embedded in the guide.  The campaign materials can also be shared with your community partners.
