gtlogoA report in the Global Times, picked up by the C&NN, says that Swiss children are not spending enough time outdoors.

A study released by the Swiss charity Pro Juventute found that while Swiss children in the 1970s spent up to four hours playing outside and moving about every day, they now only spend an average of 47 minutes per day playing outdoors.

There are significant regional differences with children living in German-speaking areas spending on average 32 minutes playing outside every day unsupervised, compared to only 20 minutes in French-speaking parts.
