Motivating Our Children to Spend Time Outdoors!

Original language : French

Here it is, July has arrived, and with it the joys of the summer holidays: new discoveries and learning, family moments, reunions with friends, and more time outdoors!

At Decathlon, we are committed to introducing children to and fostering a love for sports, for all the benefits it brings to well-being and health.

And what better place than the outdoors to take care of oneself, cultivate curiosity, and the capacity to marvel?


We are determined to further encourage children to experience the joys of spending time outdoors, for their development and that of the whole family. This co-creation topic is part of an exploration phase of this theme.

If you are a parent of a child between 2 and 12 years old, we invite you to join the adventure. No matter what sports you or your child practice, and how much time your child spends outdoors. The variety of your experiences will only be richer.


This project will consist of several stages. Feel free to participate in those that appeal to you, or all of them.

We will start by offering you a questionnaire.

In a second stage, we will delve into certain points through discussion forums.

Lastly, for the most inspired, we will offer you the opportunity to meet in September or October (in Lyon, and perhaps Lille), for a group face-to-face exchange.


We count on you to contribute to this topic, to the issues that are close to our hearts for the development of our children and the preservation of our favorite playground.
