The world has changed so much since Dr. Cairney’s presentation on physical literacy in June 2020—COVID-19 has really affected the way and the amount we all move.

This webinar will focus on what has happened since the beginning of COVID-19. Where should we put our focus going forward? Can developing physical literacy and increasing physical literacy support positive mental health?
