The goal of the "I'll grow up active 2011" programme run by "Iniciatyvos fondas" in 2011 is to draw attention to the importance of physical activity among young people. The programme aims to shed the light on the lack of physical activity and its consequences, as well as encourage young people to change their passive lifestyle into an active and healthy one.

Duration: the programme starts in the last week of September. All the preschools, schools, gymnasiums or their individual forms are encouraged to participate in the mass exercise as well as the contest of healthy lifestyle themed drawings, essays and photography. The most active participants will receive special awards. The programme is intended to end by December 24th, 2011.
