Bullying Online

Work for bullying-online.org — a ressource for parents and carers concerned about cyberbullying. Initial findings in last year’s EU Kids Online survey revealed how almost a quarter of children claim they have been bullied. And many suspect this figure is rising.
As a parent, cyberbullying is likely to be a new phenomenon to you. While the classroom and playground bullies still exist, the practice has evolved. Think about it: the internet can be an anonymous, instant and far-reaching communications tool – a perfect match for bullies seeking to inflict maximum emotional damage. But remember, you can combat this new and dangerous strain of bullying.

Health Authority

Physical activity helps children grow strong bones, maintain a healthy weight, and prevent deadly lifestyle illnesses. Unfortunately, a new study shows that only 10 pct. of Danish 11-year old girls meet the recommendations issued by the Danish Health Authority: Children need to be physical active at least 60 minutes a day. At the same time, the study shows that a parent’s effort has the greatest impact on their child’s activity level.

On this account, the Danish Health Authority is launching a new film spot aimed at fathers to pre-teens. The new work is themed “Less Will Do” and is part of the Danish Health Authority “Get Moving” campaign, which launched in early 2010. A new film kicks things off by showing how a father to a pre-teen girl is preparing himself physically and mentally for what seems to be a sports competition, but as it turns out, he is preparing himself for something completely different.

Who Made Your Clothes?

Behind the Seams is an organization dedicated to improving the conditions of workers in the international fashion industry and to raise awareness about the environmental impact of the industry.
Together we can make the changes necessary to transform an industry that is, in many cases, dangerous to garment workers and hazardous to both consumers and the environment. The Behind the Seams initiative build bridges between the global fashion industry in the developed world and the garment industry producing the clothes in the developing countries.

Health Authority

Health surveys are essential components of a comprehensive health surveillance system. Furthermore, in many countries, the only way to gain information about the health of the population is through surveys because adequate registers are not available. In Denmark, there is a long tradition of monitoring the health of the population through surveys. Our work is promoting the biggest health survey conducted every four years. A large number of responses will have a direct impact on health services offered in the local authorities.
This work was supported by the Ministry of the Interior and Health, the National Board of Health, the five Danish Regions and the National Institute of Public Health.

A Gift For Life

Anyone who’s seen kids on a playground knows that most are naturally physically active and love to move around. But what might not be apparent is that climbing to the top of a slide or swinging from the monkey bars can help lead kids to a lifetime of being active.

As they get older, it can be a challenge for kids to get enough daily activity. Reasons include increasing demands of school, a feeling among some kids that they aren’t good at sports, a lack of active role models, and busy working families. In spite of these barriers, parents can instill a love of activity and help kids fit it into their everyday lives. Doing so can set healthy patterns that will last into adulthood. It’s a gift for life.

Social Services

Supporting a person who has dementia to remain active and still feel involved in life can be the key to maintaining quality of life even into the later stages of the illness. This is not just the job of an activity organiser or an entertainer, it is also part of every person’s role, whether you are a friend or relative, a home or day care worker, a nurse, a care assistant, a manager or a domestic worker.

Earth Hour is the world’s biggest celebration for our amazing planet, hundreds of millions of people from across the world coming together in a symbolic and spectacular light outs display.

So whether you reflect under the stars or celebrate by candlelight, it’s a moment to say you’ll do your bit to protect our planet – not just for one hour, but every day.
