Green Blue Active for kids: Little Sprouts Active


We playfully move outdoors in green spaces, and spark meaningful conversations about living healthy active lifestyles. Our classes include simple practices rooted in principles of mindfulness and positive psychology.

Little Sprouts Active was created because children are raised in an expanding digitalized landscape, and studies are showing that youth are excessively engaged in screentime, becoming increasingly sedentary, overweight, unfit, and disconnected from natural environments. 

Recently, children's emotional and mental health has been impacted due to the pandemic, and Green Blue Active aims to provide safe and health-enhancing activities for children to move, play, and learn to manage their big emotions- all while connecting with nature, and recognizing the value of the environment for health. 

Our classes are instructed by a native English speaker. This is a great way for little ones to gain vocabulary and practice English in a playful atmosphere. 

Participants are introduced to green exercise concepts:

  • physical activity for mood improvement and increased 'happy' hormones 
  • mental restoration through mechanisms in the forest (biodiversity - "awe" factors in the forest, the parasympathetic nervous system)
  • how the tree's immune system supports our immune system
  • the wonderful benefits of green physical activity and behaviour change 
  • for older youth- the power of unplugging for well-being and mental health
  • practice in meditation, mindfulness and positive psychology for empowerment, stress reduction, cultivating kindness, empathy and more

Green Blue Active visits schools, sports clubs, and youth clubs in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg, and Berlin. We offer customized classes to fit learning objectives and develop health promotion programming for kids.
