Parachute Safe Kids Week will take place May 30 to June 5, 2021 with the theme #PlaySafeOutdoors.
Safe Kids Week is an annual campaign to raise public awareness of child safety issues in Canada, encouraging community involvement as part of the solution.
The topic of 2021’s Safe Kids Week digital campaign will be outdoor play, encouraging children to #PlaySafeOutdoors and engage in unstructured, risky and exciting play, often.
With fewer than five per cent of children and fewer than one per cent of youth meeting movement behaviour guidelines during COVID-19 restrictions, outdoor play is more important than ever for kids. Parachute wants kids to #PlaySafeOutdoors to encourage mental, physical, social and emotional well-being.
Stay tuned for our Safe Kids Week resources for 2021!
