Aggarpsskolan in Svedala named The Pep School of the Year 2020!
Yesterday, the winner was decided in the Pep School of the Year category, a category in the White Guide Junior competition that is awarded to a school for their work for an more active and healthier school day. This year's Pep School 2020 is Aggarpsskolan in Svedala!
On September 15, the 13 categories in the White Guide Junior were decided. 10 schools in Sweden were nominated for the Pep School of the Year category, for their active work with physical activity and good, nutritious meals. The winner in 2020 was Aggarpsskolan in Svedala.
All schools nominated for the award work with Generation Pep's free tools Generation Pep School. The tool, which has been developed together with researchers and schools, has been available for over two years to support schools' systematic health work. Over 1,500 schools have registered on the site.
- We know that school is an important arena that reaches all children, and that it therefore becomes extra important that schools work systematically with their health work. It feels great to be able to highlight schools that are good role models through White Guide Junior and hopefully it can be a carrot and inspire more people in their work, says Carolina Klüft, managing director for Generation Pep.

On Wednesday 16 September, Prince Daniel, together with Generation Pep, visited the British Junior School in Eskilstuna. British Junior received the Pep School of the Year 2019 award.
The prince was welcomed to British Junior by principal Åsa Ekholm and deputy principal Linda Lindgren who showed around the schoolyard where a number of outdoor activities took place.
British Junior uses a movement concept that aims for the students to move and ultimately feel good and have energy for school work. A number of lessons are conducted outdoors, for example. In the schoolyard, two outdoor teachers work to stimulate fun activities. Every Wednesday, Biking Wednesday is held where students have the opportunity to cycle mountain bike trails during the lunch break together with educators. During the visit, the Prince took the opportunity to cycle in the track with some of the school's students.

Prince Daniel was on site in Eskilstuna to visit this year's Pep school and impressed with his tricks.
Every year, Prince Daniel nominates the Pep School of the Year through his Generation Pep Foundation to encourage schools and school children across the country to move more. Last year the prize went to the British Junior school in Eskilstuna and on Wednesday he was there on a visit.
Prince Daniel is not the one who says no to a little activity in everyday life, so the delighted school children got to play field hockey, climb obstacle courses and cycle with the prince. On the bike, Daniel excelled a little extra. In front of the impressed students, he showed his skills in climbing and cycling on a wheel, something that was very much appreciated.

Prince Daniel wants more young people to move - and then he can lead by example.
When the prince visited the British Junior school in Eskilstuna, he jumped on the bike and styled in front of the school children.
Health in school children and young people is one of Prince Daniel's big heart issues, and the former gym owner is the founder of the Generation Pep foundation, which wants to promote the joy of movement in children.
On Wednesday, the prince visited the British Junior school in Eskilstuna, which last year was named Pep school of the year.
He then took the opportunity to move properly with the school children on site, and took part in both football, bandy and a lesson in nature. In addition, Prince Daniel switched on the bicycle help and tricked himself on a bicycle in front of the cameras. More joy of movement for the people!

Very good video and Daniel's interview at SVT News
Prince Daniel visited Eskilstuna - highlighted the school's business venture
- I'm here to look at this school which is a good example of how to work with physical activity. Children and young people should preferably move at least one hour every day. Here at the school, you have received, during the school day, 60 minutes. It is really incredibly strong and good, because then you can, no matter how you have it at home, get the opportunity for this elementary physical activity that everyone needs every day. I have always been passionate about sports and physical activity because it is so important. It is a big problem that we become more passive and sedentary.
How can this negative trend be reversed?
- This is a very big and difficult issue. Many forces work in the opposite direction. We have screens, we have so many exciting TV programs ... It's all about us sitting in front of our screens or TV. We need to work well in advance. We need to set good habits early in life. This is where the school comes in as a very important player. Among the most important and best things you can do is get it into school early. And as a parent, you have a huge responsibility, said Daniel.
Prince Daniel and Crown Princess Victoria are the initiators of Generation Pep. British Junior has been named the 2019 Pep school. On Wednesday, the school was visited by Prince Daniel.
- It feels like there is a lot of energy and enthusiasm here, says the prince.
Generation Pep's vision is that all children and young people should have an opportunity to live an active and healthy life. British Junior has worked with health issues for a long time and has been involved as a Pep school since the start in 2017.
- That the prince came here means a lot. Health issues are important for everyone and it is important to dare to make changes yourself, says the school's principal Åsa Ekholm.

About the visit to British Junior School
Generation Pep Instagram
"On Wednesday, Generation Pep and H.R.H Prince Daniel visited British Junior in Eskilstuna for a school visit. Among other things, the prince got to try riding a mountain bike with the students and having an outdoor lesson.
British Junior works systematically with both physical activity and healthy food, and for their work they were named Pep School of the Year in the White Guide Junior competition 2019"
He is known as a royal style icon and we rarely see him without his double-breasted jacket. Prince Daniel simply holds on tight to his suit, and maybe it's a bit of a security thing: In it, he feels well-dressed, and probably also comfortable. And he wears it like a king.
But there are limits to Prince Daniel as well. And that includes: Riding a mountain bike in the woods, wearing a power suit.
Yet this is exactly what he did. Prince Daniel was at the British Junior School in Eskilstuna with his organization Generation Pep to hear more about the school's award-winning method to get the kids moving more. Everything was peace and joy and Prince Daniel happily showed off on the bike, wearing his suit.
But when he finished a moment later, there were other tones:
- Slightly hot! I realized that I have dressed completely wrong today. I'll never ride in a suit again!

Daniel took today part in the digital launch of the Stairs Day (Trappans Dag) arranged by 100 Trappsteg in collaboration with Suicide Zero, Karolinska Institutet, The Heart-Lung Foundation and Generation Pep. Daniel's interview was shown at the two-hour long launch and Generation Pep's managing director Carolina Klüft was one of the lecturers.
Daniel's interview starts at 57.00 and Carolina Klüft's lecture is after that.
At the video:
The host: We Sweden are fortunate to have a crown princess couple who are very strongly involved in public health issues. And Mattias and I had the pleasure of meeting Prince Daniel a few days ago.
It looked resilient, Prince Daniel!
- Then I have to thank for it coming from you.
Does the prince have time to train anything himself?
- I think so, I think you have to prioritize, and then maybe you always have time to train a whole hour but it can be shorter sessions, short intensive sessions, and try to take the moment when it comes. But then I have some booked sessions a couple of times a week, so I know I get my training.
We encourage everyone to walk at least 100 stairs every day. Does the prince usually go up stairs?
- I try to do it and if you work here (shows the Royal Palace), you have your office here, so there will be some stairs, but there can definitely be a lot more. I believe very much in everyday exercise, and spontaneous exercise. I have a tendency to sit a little too much and drive a little too much, so I have a little to work on.
What does training mean for the prince?
- It means a lot. I come from such a background, I have worked with exercise and tried to get other people to adopt an active and healthy lifestyle. It is something I have always missionized for others to move more and also myself. I am very sedentary work and I try to get as much exercise and training as possible. In some periods it gets smaller, but you can try to get short passes, for example when traveling abroad with a tight program, at least do something for ten minutes. I try to think that everything is better than nothing. That's my philosophy, I'm trying to bring something in anyway.
Sedentary and reduced physical activity is otherwise a growing problem, not least with children and young people. How does the Crown Princess couple think about health and exercise with your own children?
- In general, we work a lot with it. We have our organization, Generation Pep, where we try to highlight the importance of children's exercise and physical activity. And we do the same with our own children, of course. They also want to sit and watch screens and like to occupy themselves in that way. But going out, being outdoors, I think is a key, you have time and opportunity to go out with the children, then there is often physical activity and spontaneous play and movement. Then of course, when you go to preschool like our son does, they are out all the time now and running around, so then it is probaly more about recovering. In general, it is a big problem, children and young people should move for at least an hour every day, and that is something we should really strive for in society.
Does the prince have an idea how we can reach everyone about the importance of everyday exercise?
- It is really the big nut to crack, to reach those who are not already saved, the risk is that we who are already passionate about this become more and more interested and exercise more and eat better so that this health gap increases, it can become a stigma. But I think I try to lay the good foundations early in life and you can get it in preschool and school, so there I think there is an incredible opportunity that you can succeed in getting in physical activity. Otherwise it is very unequal.
We should thank the Crown Princess couple for everything to do with public health!
- Thank you, the same to you. What a good initiative this is and good luck, really.

The second Pep Park has now been opened in Arenastaden in Solna, in front of the Friends Arena. Daniel inaugurated the first Pep Park on 1st September 2019.
New Pep Park adds color to Arenastaden
Arenastaden has received a playful and colorful addition in the form of a new Pep Park. At Arenatorget, a stone's throw from both Friends Arena and Westfield Mall of Scandinavia, Fabege, together with Generation Pep and Solna Stad, has built the new park, which will inspire children and young people to move more.
Pep Parks in Solna is a collaboration between Fabege, the city of Solna and Generation Pep - an organization initiated by the Crown Princess couple. The purpose of the concept is to promote the health of children and young people and to increase the conditions for play, movement and everyday exercise together. The parks must contain elements adapted for all different ages, be accessible to all and stimulate both spontaneous and planned activity. The Pep park in Arenastaden is the second of the three activity parks to be built in Solna, and will be a welcome feature between the magnificent house facades around Arenatorget.
- With a Pep Park in Arenastaden, more children, young people and adults in Solna get even better opportunities for play and everyday exercise together, all year round, says Pehr Granfalk, chairman of the municipal board, city of Solna.

Victoria and Daniel met today the members of the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation's Expert Council and Youth Council.⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Wednesday, October 7, the Crown Princess and Prince Daniel met the participants in the Expert and Youth Council of the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation.
The Crown Princess Couple's Foundation supports organizations that work to promote good health and counteract exclusion among children and young people.
To ensure that the projects that the foundation supports effectively improve health and community, the foundation has an Expert council. The participants act as advisors, assess and prioritize between the applications.
This year, the foundation has engaged four ninth-graders from Hjulsta school outside Stockholm to a Youth council. The students have discussed and assessed the applications that have been received by the foundation and during the meeting with the Crown Princess, Prince Daniel and the Expert council gave their views on the advantages and disadvantages of the applications.
The experts and the Youth council work voluntarily to support the foundation.

The Crown Princess met with organization Right to Play
On Tuesday, October 13, the Crown Princess met participants from the organization Right to Play.
In collaboration with municipalities, companies and sports associations, Right to Play Sweden supports and educates unaccompanied and newly arrived young people aged 16-24.
During the visit, which took place at Friends Arena in Solna, the Crown Princess met four young people who are participating in the project. The young people told about their personal experiences and what significance Right To Play had for them.
During the visit, the Crown Princess also gained in-depth knowledge of Right To Play's activities.
In 2020, Right to Play Sweden, with the support of the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation, ran a project for girls and young women in isolation. The project aims to strengthen the power to drive change with the goal of increasing both participation and the number of young female leaders in association life, the sports movement and in the labor market.

On Tuesday 13 October, Crown Princess Victoria met four girls participating in the Right To Play program.
In 2020, with the support of the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation, Right To Play Sweden ran a project for foreign-born girls between the ages of 16-24 who are in a perceived exclusion. The project aims to strengthen the power to drive change with the goal of increasing both participation and the number of young female leaders in association life, the sports movement and in the labor market.
Crown Princess Victoria and Nahal Illerstig from the Foundation met four of the participating young people to get an in-depth insight into the activities and the project that the foundation supports. The girls Rana, Kadra, Zahra and Elaha shared their personal journeys and the importance that Right To Play has had for them. Charles Lindell Beskow, program manager at Right To Play, also attended the meeting.

Pep Forum on 12th November
This year's digital Pep Forum offers inspiring examples and tools from various actors and arenas with the common goal of promoting equal health for children and young people. Health today is not equal and the conditions look different depending on where you were born and where you live. Instead of the health gaps decreasing, we see that the trends are pointing in the wrong direction and the gaps are increasing.
During the program, you will, among other things, take part in concrete national and international methods for strengthening the health of children and young people. The international best-selling author and physician Rangan Chatterjee shares his thoughts on society's view of obesity and how we lower the thresholds for a more active life. Of course, Carolina Klüft, Generation Pep's managing director talks about our new work to create increased commitment and collaboration around children and young people's health.
In addition to this, you can take part in the latest research from Elin Ekblom Bak, hear more about two of the biggest warning signs of unequal health among children in today's Sweden, as well as interesting panel discussions and interviews.
The goal of the day is for all actors to feel a commitment and a will to together create change for a more equal health.
Pep Forum 2020 will be moderated by Jessica Almenäs and Dona Hariri.
TRH Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel take part in Pep Forum.

Pep Forum does not take a break. This year, we invite you all to a digital variant filled with interesting speakers and concrete examples of how we can create change for children and young people's health. Of course, it is completely free to participate.
