Principles of HAKK

HAKK is guided by the following principles. That:

  • Children have the right to a variety of structured and unstructured opportunities to participate in physical activity and play.
  • Daily activities at home, in schools, and in communities will be the focus of the initiative.
  • Fair and safe play will be an integral part of structured opportunities for children and youth.
  • Helping inactive children and youth become more active will be a priority.
  • The initiative will identify and build on what is currently offered by existing groups, organizations, and institutions in the community.
  • The initiative will be based on evidence and best practices.
  • Children and youth will be empowered and involved in leadership.
  • Collaborative effort among agencies, government, and non-government organizations is a proven method for achieving results.
