Green Blue Active for kids: Little Sprouts Active

We created Little Sprouts classes for children to engage in physical activity and well-being classes to support a healthy lifestyle. 

Green Blue Active visits schools in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg and Berlin. Our activities offer a blend of physical activity, health education and stress management practices to promote healthy habits. 

This is important in our growing digitalized landscape where children and youth are excessively engaged in screentime and becoming increasingly sedentary and overweight. Recently children's emotional and mental health has been impacted due to the pandemic, and Green Blue Active aims to provide safe and health-enhancing activities for children to move and play.  

Our classes are instructed by a native English-speaker. This is a great way for little ones to learn words and practice English in a playful atmosphere. 

Participants are introduced to green exercise concepts:

  • physical activity for mood improvement and increased 'happy' hormones 
  • mental restoration through mechanisms in the forest (biodiversity - "awe" factors in the forest, the parasympathetic nervous system)
  • how the tree's immune system supports our immune system
  • the wonderful benefits of green physical activity and behaviour change 
  • for older youth- the power of unplugging for well-being and mental health
