All Youth Television Networks in Belgium stopped broadcasting on Wednesday afternoon as part of an initiative to encourage Children to leave Electronics behind and be active outdoors.

In Brussels, the main event featured face painting, a Bicycle repair Workshop, an inflatable Castle and more for the Public to enjoy.

Minister of the Brussels region for mobility and public works, Pascal Smet, recognised that Kids spending too long behind screens and not enough playing outside is a Worldwide Problem.
