The Crown Princess Couple launches today initiative GEN-PEP for Swedish children's health

Together with leading Swedish companies, foundations and non-profit organizations today will be launched GEN-PEP, a non-profit organization with the vision that all children and young people in Sweden should have the ability and desire to live an active and healthy life. GEN-PEP works to spread knowledge, inspiration and support to both children and young people, parents and other adults around children.
Sweden is one of Europe's most sedentary countries and the percentage of children who reach the recommended amount of physical activity one hour per day, is small. 75 percent of Swedish children eat too little green, fruit and berries. It may not sound so bad, but in fact this is now one of our biggest health hazards.
- The ambition with Generation PEP is to create engagement and change for children's health. It is a large and comprehensive challenge that no one can solve on its own. We are pleased from the start to have with us many strong partners, and our hope is to get more, said Prince Daniel who together with Crown Princess is the initiator of the GEN-PEP.
The aim is to involve the whole community together to help children and young people to live a healthy life.

Partners that will drive initiatives within the framework of the GEN-PEP: Alla på snö, En Frisk Generation, Friluftsfrämjandet, H&M, ICA, Idrottsgalan, IKEA, MTG Sverige, Skolklassikern, Telia, Trivselledare and TV4.
Founding partners: Carl Bennet AB, CS Stiftelse för Nästa Generation, Familjen Erling Perssons Stiftelse, ICA, IKEA, Kronprinsessparets Stiftelse (The Crown Princess Couple's Foundation), Stiftelsen Marcus och Amalia Wallenbergs Minnesfond and Telia.
Knowledge Partners: Folkhälsomyndigheten (Public Health Agency), Gymnastik- och Idrottshögskolan (The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences) and Karolinska Institutet.
Supporting partners: Forsman & Bodenfors, McKinsey & Company, Mannheimer Swartling, Alumni, Awapatent Foundation and Northern Lights.

The launch will take place in the gymnastic hall at S:t Hansskolan in Visby July 4 at. 12:30.

Daniel told at his opening speech that last week he and his family were at his parents' summer place in Acktjära. Daniel told that his father grew up there, and so did his grandfather Anders, born in 1900. Anders had eight siblings, the life wasn't easy at a poor family and often his grandfather hoped that he would have got more food to eat. When Anders was 12 years old, he had to leave his home to go to work at a farmer. It gave hard work from the morning until the evening but also more food to eat. Daniel said that his grandfather would have been disappointed if he would have seen how we live today, having health problems due to that we move too little, sit too much and eat everything else what out bodies really want.
Daniel spoke a lot about statistics and said that children should exercise and move at least one hour a day. He has a four year old child at home. The statistics tell that the four year old children in Sweden sit almost half of the time they are awake during a day. It seems totally strange to him.
Daniel launched the initiative and told that GEN-PEP, Generation PEP comes from "Pep-talk". He told about the initiative, what he and Victoria want to do with it and highlighted that they can't do it alone, not even with all their partners. Everyone is needed so that the future for the children is better.
Daniel was interviewed in the end of the seminar. Daniel said that they have done very much work with this initiative during the last year. They have read reports and met people and there has been many late nights with it. Daniel said also that this is a long term initiative and their involvement is long term, even 2030 seems to be very close (the moderator asked about Victoria as the advocate of UN Global Goals). "This is just the start", Daniel said. Moderator Dilsa Demirbag-Sten said that there has been an enormous interest to this event and this initiative, and Daniel said that he is very thankful for all the partners and people who have helped them. They hope to have more people and partners with them to GEN-PEP during the years to come. Daniel sees that he will grow old with GEN-PEP and that it will take a lot of his time during the years to come. Victoria is also very committed with this and they want to act as a unifying positive force in this work and get people together to do good things. Daniel said that what is great in their role is that they can work with a very long term commitment.
Daniel held a short speech in the end and said that he hopes that after 30-40 years he can look back to this day and think "we made it, we made it together, we made the impossible, we changed the public health with an unbelievably strong way".

Skolklassikern aims to get children to move regularly because they get to test at more sports themselves and, together, find the joy motion and find simple ways to everyday exercise. Skolklassikern was founded in 2015 and run by En Svensk Klassiker, whose brand, structure and organization seem to create success in improved operating and exercise habits. In order to get Skolklassikern to the next level, we become part of the public health project GEN-PEP.

Telia becomes a Founding Partner of GEN-PEP. "Children and young people are our future. These are issues that engage us. We already have a partnership including the Friends, in order to prevent children and young people in distress on the web. As a market leader, it is natural for us to step forward and take responsibility. With the help of digitization capabilities, innovation and our technology we can make a difference", says Helene Barnekow, president TeliaSonera Sweden.

ICA is involved in the new organization GEN-PEP working for children and young people getting the opportunity to live an active and healthy life. ICA will work to help young people to make healthy choices, and inspire them to eat better and move more.
- Poor health is one of the biggest social problems and we need to start with children. ICA has been working for fifteen years with the project ”Kompis med kroppen” ("Buddy with Your Body") where students will learn more about fruit and vegetables. Through our involvement in the GEN-PEP, we get even more power in the effort to get more young people to live healthy, says Per Strömberg, CEO of the ICA Group.

Within the framework of GEN-PEP, we create an additional platform for cooperation that will lead us forward in our work to create a more active society. Together we can contribute to strengthening public health, be a stronger voice for children and adolescents to a healthier living and together we can strengthen our contribution to a better Sweden", says Lars Lundstrom, Secretary General of Friluftsfrämjandet.

Daniel gave an interview to Expressen
- GEN-PEP is a health initiative, Generation Pep, which is about that we will try to get people in Sweden to move more, sit less still, get a balance between sedentary and physical activity, Daniel said.
- It is incredibly shocking and worrying that we have become so physically inactive. We are one of the most sedentary people, it's incredibly frightening. I think there is a lot of stigma and many who feel pressure around that. It is important to add good habits and talk in a way so that one does not to feel bad and unsuccessful. Small, small steps. If you walk 20 minutes every day, it has extreme health effects. Just 15 minutes every other day, added, giving 45 hours of exercise per year. If you go from doing nothing to 45 hours of exercise per year, it is a health benefit. We're taking small steps to do something better.
How does the prince keep himself in shape?
- I have always been involved in sports and all that. I try to jog a little, go to the gym. I like to be out there.
Prince Daniel thinks that it is important that the children are moving.
- In preschool, they move almost the entire day. They are outdoors almost all the time. We like to be out in the woods, like making activities. A lot of sliding with sled in the winter. Estelle gets it in herself.

Daniel's interview to Aftonbladet
- Something that worries me a lot is that health is so unequal. Depending on what family you are born and where they live, the risk of getting diabetes is up to three times as high.
- I and the Crown Princess and our partners want to spread knowledge around health and physical activity for children and young people. We know that it is very important from an early age be introduced to physical activity. That one feels physically capable, it's something one takes with for life. It strengthens self-esteem.
Many children spend several hours a day sitting in front of the computer screen.
- Studies show that four year olds now spend almost half of their waking hours sedentary, says Prince Daniel.
It is a figure that touches him especially much, he has a four year old daughter at home. How would Prince Daniel be a role model for his children?
- I believe very much that children do we as parents do. I believe strongly on taking kids out and that they must be part of everything you do. Then the kids also move much. If I sit at the computer, there is a tendency that the children do it too.
What are Prince Daniel's own favorite activities with the children?
- There is a lot that I like to do with the kids. In winter it is wonderful to go out at the park and ride a little sled. And going to a playground I think is great fun. To see the energy and joy. The running in the child's legs has not disappeared, but we adults must give support. It must be worth something for the children to move.
What happens in Princess Estelle's development right now?
- A lot is happening. I don't really hang with it. It goes so fast, and it's great fun.
Daniel thinks all the training images in social media create great stress and pressure on many. And he points out that it is not easy for parents to have enough time for everything.
- I think it's incredibly important to have the approach of adding good habits, more than focusing on removing the bad.

The english text at the website of GEN-PEP
GEN-PEP is a non-profit organization that works to spread knowledge and get people involved in promoting the health of children and young people. The goal is to bring together companies, organizations and people in a joint effort to make it easier for children and young people to live a healthy life.
Why GEN-PEP?
We don’t get enough exercise and we don’t eat well enough. That might not sound too serious, but in fact this combination is one of our greatest health hazards, with consequences such as depression, diabetes type 2, sleep disorders, stroke, heart attack, dementia and osteoporosis. Our lifestyles are literally killing us and it is time to take this problem seriously.
Sweden is one of Europe’s most sedentary countries.
Sweden is one of the most sedentary countries in Europe and the percentage of children who achieve the recommended amount of physical activity – one hour a day – is small. Swedish four-year-olds sit still nearly half of their waking hours and only one out of eight thirteen-year-olds gets enough exercise every day.
Seventy-five percent of Swedish children eat less than the WHO-recommended intake of 400 grams of fruit and vegetables a day and twenty-two percent of the daily diet of Swedish children is made up of different types of sugar, more than twice as much as WHO’s recommended intake of ten percent.
Together we are GEN-PEP!
We are facing a huge and difficult challenge that we cannot solve on our own. It is going to require hard work from many people for a long time. We have received help from partners in this initial stage, but are always on the lookout for others who want to get involved in our children’s and young people’s health.

Daniel's interview done by Anders Pihlblad was shown at TV4 play at their News morning today.
Daniel said that he understands that it is tough for a single parent with three children to find time, there is cooking and helping with children's homework and other things and one should find time to support their children to physical activities. It's enough to go out and move, go to woods or park. Daniel said also that he sits too much still, but thanks to research reports and good advice he tries to stand up and move a little every hour.

The partners in GEN-PEP launch various initiatives, for instance ICA is going to launch three initiatives in the autumn, the GEN-PEP website tells.
One of them is the launch of "GEN-PEP fruit and vegetables"
The initiative aims to get children and young people eat fruit and vegetables at least five times each day. Around the school start and in the autumn, we are launching a series of fruit in smaller sizes, excellent for children and young people, with the GEN-PEP as sender, apples, pears, oranges and small citrus fruit. Through the initiative, we hope to inspire parents and children to eat more fruits and vegetables. Part of the prize for "PEP fruit" will also be used for activities done together with GEN-PEP.

Annica Hjerling, municipal commissioner responsible for public health in Haninge, met a committed prince in Almedalen.
- Prince Daniel has a strong commitment to public health and children's movement, issues that we work a lot with Haninge, not least through collaboration with En Frisk Generation in which Prince Daniel is involved, she says.
(Daniel is the founder and patron of En Frisk Generation Foundation (Healthy Generation), and the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation supports EFG with a grant).
The prince listened to Haninge's plans to get more people to cycle.
- I talked with Prince Daniel of how we in Haninge are working to get more people to cycle in everyday life, and handed Haninge's new mental cycle maps, Hjerling tells.
The maps will highlight the experience of Haninge cycle environments and bring in new perspectives of social development debate.

- I welcome that the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation takes this initiative because the physical and mental health of our young people are worse today than in the past. To focus on these issues is crucial for young people's future, says professor Carl Johan Sundberg at Karolinska Institutet.
- Sedentary has increased rapidly and threatens the health and well-being. I really welcome the mobilization that GEN-PEP represents and believe that the investment can mean a lot for Swedish Public Health, says professor Mai-Lis Hellenius.

Svensk Damtidning has at this week's issue Daniel's interview at the launch of GEN-PEP, here's parts of it. Daniel told that he has grown up with initiatives A Non Smoking Generation and Håll Sverige Rent, they had a big impact.
- And now I and my wife want to spread knowledge and create engagement around health and physical activity for the children and young people. We know that it is so important that you are moving already as a child.
How the idea of this was born?
- We heard some frightening research reports. I think we can play a role to bring people together so that we are taking steps in the right direction. We want to be involved and contribute. Someone might think "But aren't we incredibly brisk in Sweden?" We train, drink protein drinks and on Instagram we can clearly observe that the Swedes are quite satisfied with their physical status.
But the trend looks anything but good, he underlines.
- We are one of the countries in Europe that is mostly sedentary and we eat about 15 kg of sweets per year per person.
What kind of habits you have changed at home?
- This with sedentary has come clear for me, and for us. How dangerous it is. More and more research reports show how much we sit still and the negative impact it has for the body. You may think that if you practice a little, you can sit still like forever, and go to meeting after meeting. Now I try to get up in the middle of meetings and move my legs a little
What is Estelle's favourite sport?
- Estelle doesn't have a favorite sport yet. But she is very active physically and likes to dance and move.
Is it hard to keep Estelle away from her Ipad?
- No, I don't think so.

Carolina Klüft (Olympic gold medalist in heptathlon in 2004) from Viasat Sport interviewed Daniel about the Olympic Games, GEN-PEP and health. The interview was shown at Viasat's broadcast from the Olympic Games on Sunday evening. Unfortunately the video can be seen only in Sweden.

Sarah Sjöström (Victoria Scholarship winner 2015) swam home Sweden's first gold, and Emma Johansson brought silver in the road race. Many Swedes have high expectations for the championship in Brazil, Prince Daniel is no exception.
- I have incredibly high expectations. Not only that there will be good performances, but also that it should be a real festival. I think it will be a great atmosphere, says Prince Daniel.
Many Swedes sit at home and follow the Olympic Games with excitement, according to Prince Daniel Swedish success means much for Sweden as a country. The Prince thinks also role models are important.
- I think all events with which we can gather around mean a lot. Olympic Games are so amazingly large. The world's top athletes will compete for medals and we get to watch, it is amazing, but also to inspire the younger generation to get involved with sports.
Recently the Prince lauched with Crown Princess Victoria a concept that they have chosen to name to Generation PEP. An initiative to get young people in particular to move more, and the prince himself has a few tips on how to get started with daily exercise.
- It's about spreading knowledge and commitment to the children and young people's health. We see lot of worrying trends, we are moving less and less, sit more and more and eat more and more junk. We want to do something about it.
- When it comes to children, it's about getting them out for an hour and get some physical activity, it is incredibly valuable. Such things like only get up every half hour and move around a little bit, have incredible health benefits.

Great, GEN-PEP publishes Daniel's interview at Viasat Sport at their Facebook on a video. The interview was done in Solliden.

Daniel says at the video (in addition to the article), that the swedish people eat more sweets than any others in the whole world. He says that of course people can eat some ice cream and sweets when they are watching the Olympics but there should be a balance. That is why they (he and Victoria) are worried about the tendency and want to do something to it. Simple things like a walk or cycling or getting children outside, in the park and woods they are moving. Half an hour exercise a day for the adults and an hour for the children, some physical activity, is so valuable.
Klüft asks which are Daniel's best memories from the Olympic Games. Daniel says that there are many, one is the swedish gold in ice hockey in Lillehammer's Olympic Games, when goalie Salo made a save after Peter Forsberg had made a great goal from penalty shot and Maja Reichardt's gold at the London Paralympics in 2012. And Cathy Freeman in Sydney, she had such a pressure from the whole Australia at her home Olympics and she could manage with it, those are great performances. And then Daniel laughs and says that then moreover of course, I see that you stand there waiting (he refers to Klüft's olympic gold in 2004), absolutely!

That is why they (he and Victoria) are worried about the tendency and want to do something to it. Simple things like a walk or cycling or getting children outside, in the park and woods they are moving. Half an hour exercise a day for the adults and an hour for the children, some physical activity, is so valuable.
Is he right?

Obviously Victoria's and Daniel's meeting with Jamie Oliver had to do with their Foundation and initiative GEN-PEP.
From court Instagram and Facebook
"During a visit to London the Crown Princess Couple met with the chef and entrepreneur Jamie Oliver and talked about children's physical health. Read more about children's physical health at www.gen-pep.se"

The multi-talented Klüft has an extremely successful career in athletics behind and has worked past year as a host for Viasat and soon debuts as a writer. Her interest in society is well documented and now she joins as a project manager to assist GEN-PEP achieve the vision that all children and young people in Sweden should have the ability and desire to live an active and healthy life.
"We are very pleased that we have succeeded in linking Carolina Klüft to Generation PEP," said Prince Daniel. "For the crowd, she is known as an incredible athlete, but behind all the sports performance is a very smart and driven person with a great social commitment. We are incredibly grateful that she wants to work with us on issues relating to children and young people's health."
"It is extremely gratifying and inspiring to have the chance to work with spreading GEN-PEP's vision that all children and young people in Sweden shall move. Throughout my athletic career, physical activity has been in focus but more towards the performance-oriented direction.

Klüft began at her new job on 1 September.

Carolina Klüft to Expressen:
- It is a project under the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation and deals with children and young people's health. The aim is to get young people in motion and improve their eating habits. The Crown Princess couple is very keen that this project will be disseminated widely and I hope that too. This is absolutely not about elite sport, but about giving children the opportunity, and the like, to move more, says Carolina Klüft and reveals how she was recruited to the new task.
- It was Prince Daniel who called me and wanted to hire me to and I'm very happy that I got the question. Children and young people's health is an issue I am passionate about. I'm very happy for the job.
Can you say you have a royal job now?
- Haha no, but you may well call the project royal.
Klüft has been hosting Viasat's olympic broadcasts from Sochi and Rio. At least for a while there will be no more television assignments for Klüft.
- I don't close any doors for television, it's been great fun and instructive but right now I'm focusing on this project and my upcoming book release. Then I will continue with my lectures and little else, says Klüft.

TV4 is a partner of GEN-PEP. They started the collaboration because they want to contribute to sustainable development. For us it is about standing up for democracy and freedom against prejudice and discrimination, and to fight for a more child-friendly world. These values, we have conveyed our daily business for 25 years. We also manifested and power together with major fundraising galas and a variety of partnerships with various organizations working for children's rights and opportunities. Health and well-being is an important prerequisite for children and young people to take their rightful place in the world.

The interview was shown at TV4 Nyhetsmorgon (News morning) today. It was over 10 minutes long interview where Daniel spoke about GEN-PEP and how the children should move and exercise more and about health. He also told about how their family tries to exercise and about how Estelle moves.

"Sad that health is a social class issue Prince Daniel"
