MyMovez-researcher Thabo van Woudenberg made a trip to Bangkok in the fall of 2016, Thailand. On the ISPAH 2016 congress, he presented some preliminary findings of the first year of the MyMovez-project. Among other things, he showed that the participants of the MyMovez-project were more active when they spend time with a classmate compared to times when they were alone. It does not matter whether that classmate is a friend or not. Likewise, no difference was found for group size. Thus, if participants are together with at least one other classmate, they are more likely to be active!
In short: If youngsters are together, they are a lot more active!
