Enabling Shady Behaviour….where our children live, learn and play is an opportunity for you to learn from content experts and from exciting community examples. It 's an opportunity to expand your network and your knowledge on the role of the physical and built environment in supporting health promoting behaviour and environments that reduce overexposure to UV rays.
Skin cancer rates are high in N.S. Reducing the risk of overexposure to the sun is possible by creating environments that support shady behaviour. This is especially important for settings frequented by children. Think parks, playgrounds, school grounds and child care settings. Sports fields and camp grounds and gathering spaces like community gardens. Enhancing shade in N.S. can contribute to the health of our province.
