I’m sure you’ve heard about the Charter for Healthy Lifestyles.
This Charter reinforces family policies and healthy lifestyles in municipalities, and can also support organizations in their vision for change.
The goal of this approach is to get people thinking about what actions they can take to promote an active lifestyle and healthy eating.
For instance, if a company that has signed the Charter wishes to offer added value to its employees, it could provide a bicycle shelter, thereby encouraging active transport. It could even install a changing room with shower.
The same goes for community organizations that have vending machines, for instance. They could offer healthier options displayed in a way that promotes foods with a high nutritional value, low in sugar and additives.
However, this Charter is not intended to impose choices, but rather to launch a debate in order to make people more aware of the benefits of lifestyle changes.
To recognize the efforts that have been made so far, and to highlight successes, we’re planning a gala event in the Estrie region on June 18.
Showcasing achievements, sharing experiences, and stimulating organizations are among the many goals of the event.
There are many entries and each one deserves consideration for its wonderful originality.
We should keep in mind that exchanges and consultations are the cornerstones of innovative development.
