Activ8 began in 2009 as a social marketing campaign aimed at raising awareness among primary school children about the importance of taking part in at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day and eating a healthy and balanced diet by promoting the eight Activ8 steps:

  1. Move your body
  2. Be part of a team
  3. Create your own game
  4. Involve your family
  5. Eatwell
  6. Go outdoors
  7. Be a leader
  8. Measure your success
