WHO’s #HealthyAtHome Challenge for Students

Staying active and connected to our loved ones during the pandemic has become more important than ever, especially for our physical and mental health. In order to help inspire millions of children who spend quality time online and to lead an active lifestyle and look after their mental health, WHO has encouraged online gaming companies to invite their users to take WHO’s #HealthyAtHome challenge.

Spring 2021 saw the launch of Yoga Season on the popular Gardenscapes game from Playrix, encouraging students to stay active, boost their energy and health by doing exercise and meditation. And in Fall the characters from Playrix's Homescapes and Gardenscapes reminded them about the importance of taking care of their mental health by reducing stress, supporting loved ones, and fostering and maintaining social contacts.

Andy Pattison, Team Lead of Digital Channels at the World Health Organization emphasized the need to continue to reach multitudes of people with lifesaving health messages which are instantly available in the palms of their hands.
