Dosen PGSD Penjas Ikuti Kongres “ISPAH” dan Global Matrix 4.0

Agus Mahendra and Dian Budiana, both are country leader and co-country leader of AHKI, who are also lecturers at PETE for Elementary School study program, FPOK UPI, flew to Abu Dhabi, in order to attend the 9th ISPAH Conference and Global Matrix 4.0 held by AHKGA (Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance). The two events programs to be attended (Congress and Global Matrix 4.0) are organized collaboratively by ISPAH (International Society of Physical Activity and Health) and AHKGA. Agus and Dian left Indonesia on Friday, 21st of October 2022, by Etihad Airline, to arrive in Abu Dhabi International airport on the same day, around almost midnight at local time.

At the ISPAH Congress Agus and Dian is going to present their poster entitled “The 2022 Indonesia’s Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Adolescent; while on the Global Matrix 4.0., Agus and Dian are representing Indonesia as a country to report their finding on the level of Physical Activity of Indonesian Children, especially on the ten common indicators determined by AHKGA, during the period of 2015 – 2022. Those ten indicators are divided into  two group of factors, they are group of movement behaviors and group of sources of influences. From the group of movement behaviors, they consists of: Overall Physical Activity, Organized Sport and Physical Activity, Active Play, Active transportation, Sedentary Behavior, and Physical Fitness; while from the group of source of influences are covering Family and Peers, Community and Environment, School and Government. From the perspective of organization, these two events are combined together, since both organizer are committing to collaboratively manage the event as a unison.

From the perspective of study areas, both ISPAH and AHKGA are standing on the same path, that is to raise the awareness of the world community to start paying attention of the importance of the physical activity on children and adolescent in its association to the health. The difference between the two are in that ISPAH is organization to gather all the concerning party or individual researchers as the individual members of ISPAH; while the AHKGA is the organization to gather those organization representing their own countries. Let us see how ISPAH and AHKGA formulate their vision and mission or at least in terms of their concerns as the followings.

ISPAH is recognised as the leading global society of researchers and practitioners focussed on promoting physical activity across the life course. Here are a few highlights about us:

  • We connect you and your work with the global community to allow you to share and learn from each other
  • We actively support the development of early- and mid- career researchers and practitioners, particularly those in low and middle income countries
  • We connect research with global, regional, and national policy and practice, and actively engage in global advocacy for physical activity
  • We work to increase understanding of the mental, physical, and social health benefits of physical activity as we as the co-benefits to society
  • We welcome interdisciplinary partnerships recognising the role of all levels of government as well as sectors outside of health

An active lifestyle with regular physical activity improves health and well-being at any age and it is never too late to start. Currently, 1 in 4 adults and 4 out of 5 adolescents are not active enough to gain the mental, social and physical health benefits. Globally, this costs health care systems over $54 billion each year.

 

ISPAH Global Target:

A 15% relative reduction in the global prevalence of physical inactivity in adults and in adolescents by 2030

We know that active living provides other benefits aside from health. Physically active communities are healthier, cleaner, more connected and sustainable and good for business. ISPAH message to everyone is simple:

 

EVERY MOVE COUNTS!

The ISPAH Congress is the largest physical activity and health Congress in the world and ISPAH is widely recognized as the leading global society of researchers and practitioners focussed on promoting physical activity across the life course.

Being the first of its kind in the region as well as the first one after the COVID-19, the ISPAH Congress promises to be both exciting and interesting in offering a whole new dimension as the unique location of Abu Dhabi will not only allow for knowledge and information sharing across the globe but also bring to the table some much needed conversations on the role factors such as cultural and gender perceptions play in individuals being physically active.

In line with previous ISPAH congresses and recognising the need for joined up solutions, the congress will bring together academics, practitioners, thought-leaders and policy makers to discuss approaches for a joined-up approach to increase physical activity. Abu Dhabi is proud and honoured to host the 9th International Society for Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH) Congress, 23rd -26th October 2022.

 

AHKGA and the Global Matrix 4.0

The Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance is a not-for-profit organization of researchers, health professionals and stakeholders who are working together to advance physical activity in children and youth from around the world. The Alliance was established in 2014 following the success of the world’s first Global Summit on the Physical Activity of Children in Toronto.

The Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance is committed to powering the global movement to get kids moving through thought leadership, knowledge translation and mobilization, capacity building, and advocacy. This is facilitated by sustainable partnerships and cross-sectoral collaborations that enable best-practice exchanges, networking and cross-fertilization.

In 2005, in an effort to power the movement to get kids moving, Active Healthy Kids Canada, a national charitable organization, created the first Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth. The Report Card summarized the best available evidence regarding physical activity in Canada and provided a comprehensive assessment of indicators relating to school, family, community and the built environment, and policy that contributed to the physical activity levels of children and youth, using the academic letter grade approach (i.e., A, B, C, D, F). The first Report Card was launched at a press event in Toronto in 2005 and achieved excellent media coverage. This encouraging beginning established the development, production, and release of the Report Card as an annual process.

Acknowledging the global concern for physical inactivity and the need for preventive action, especially among children and youth, and in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Active Healthy Kids Canada and the 10th anniversary of the Report Card, Active Healthy Kids Canada hosted the Global Summit on the Physical Activity of Children in Toronto, Canada, on May 19–22, 2014. The Summit brought together nearly 900 delegates from 31 countries, including researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, and funders from the physical activity, sport, recreation, education, fitness, transportation, early childhood development, fitness, transportation, public health, and medical sectors from across the globe.

The Global Matrix initiative involves the production and subsequent comparison of country-specific Physical Activity Report Cards for children and youth. Using a harmonized process and the best available evidence in their jurisdictions, teams of experts assess and assign letter grades to ten common physical activity indicators: Overall Physical Activity, Organized Sport and Physical Activity, Active Play, Active Transportation, Sedentary Behaviours, Physical Fitness, Family and Peers, School, Community and Environment, and Government.

The fourth iteration, the Global Matrix 4.0 (www.activehealthykids.org/4-0/), is currently in development and set to be the largest edition to date. The Global Matrix 4.0 launch will be a joint event with the ISPAH 2022 Congress and will involve the release of Report Cards from 60 countries across 6 continents as well as the results of the global comparisons.

To date, there have been three editions of the Global Matrix, all released in different parts of the world: the Global Matrix 1.0 (2014, Canada), the Global Matrix 2.0 (2016, Thailand, in partnership with ISPAH), and the Global Matrix 3.0 (2018, Australia). In 2014, the AHKGA initiated the creation of the “Global Matrix on Physical Activity for Children and Youth” to help raise awareness about the physical inactivity crisis and the need for preventive action at national and international levels.

On this ISPAH Congress, Agus and Dian is obliged to present their AHKI report card entitled The 2022 Indonesia’s Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Adolescent, as a part of their research result organized by AHKI (Active Healthy Kids Indonesia) to report to the world of the status of physical activity level of Indonesian Children. At the same time, this report also will be combined with other countries report card (57 countries to be involved in this Global Matrix 4.0.), to become one as the World’s Report Card on Physical Activity for World’s children and adolescents on Global Matrix 4.0.  The congress will run until October 26th and will be officially closed with the strong recommendation to the world’s leaders all around the globe.
