Earlier this autumn, Victoria and Daniel met Professor Stephen Hawking in Cambridge. The couple involved the Professor in the organization GEN-PEP, who strives to spread the word about the lack of physical activity. Physical inactivity has become one of the world’s largest health problems; it is now the fourth leading cause of death in the world. Studies show that 80% of the world’s adolescent population isn’t active enough. You can see what Professor Hawking has to say on the subject here.
GEN-PEP is a non-profit organization initiated by the Swedish Crown Princess Couple, working to spread knowledge and engage people and organizations in a joint effort to make it easier for children and young people to live a healthy life.
