Celebrating Active Nation Day in Switzerland

Celebrating Active Nation Day in Switzerland

This weekend the world celebrated #activenationday. It is a movement created in 2012 by Lorna Jane to inspire women, their families, communities, cities and the world to live a more Active Life! Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980, with 39% of the adult population now overweight and 1.9 billion of the world’s population not getting sufficient exercise.
