MADRID, 26 Jul. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The World Health Organization (WHO), Angry Birds Friends and Rovio Entertainment have launched a tournament in the game ‘Stay Active’, which will last a week, to encourage the population to carry out some type of physical activity.
The tournament features 24 new video game levels related to sports and healthy living, as well as numerous WHO recommendations and tips on how to stay physically active. Throughout the week, players will be encouraged to engage in physical activity in real life, with the goal of promoting healthier and longer-lasting lifestyles at home.
“For Rovio, partnering with the World Health Organization for a healthier future makes perfect sense. Engaging people through Angry Birds Friends is a way to promote fact-based health information. Angry Birds can be angry But they want to use their powers forever! “Said Rovio COO Kieran O’Leary.
For his part, the member of the WHO Department of Health and Digital Innovation, Andy Pattison, recalled that the organization
continues to advise people to find ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle and protect their mental and physical health, even during periods when spikes in Covid-19 transmission mean they spend more time at home. “We encourage people who play interactive games and perform other sedentary activities to incorporate movement into their routines and protect their physical and mental health when they need it most.”
