Babuland held a seminar at its Badda branch in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka on Saturday, highlighting the consequences of the physical and mental stress imposed on children by contemporary urban lifestyles, and the importance of a stress-free childhood. to ensure a positive impact on children, says a press release.
Children should ideally grow up amidst greenery and fresh air, but now such a scenario is a rare find among modern cities filled with skyscrapers. This represents a major obstacle to the healthy physical, mental and social development of children.
Key figures from Babuland’s management attended the event while company investors, business partners and media personnel were in attendance.
Babuland co-founder and chairman, Ishnad Chowdhury, said: “Dhaka city has only 294 acres of playground against a requirement of 1876 acres or only 16%. As a result, 77% of children are deprived of sufficient physical exercise every day. Eventually, this leads to risks of illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, or even mental depression.
“We are here to help society fill this gap and impact the physical and mental development of the next generation by providing safe and hygienic indoor playgrounds,” he added.
According to a survey conducted by the Bangladesh Planners Institute on the current population of Bangladesh, the areas under the jurisdiction of two municipal corporations in Dhaka city include only 235 playgrounds, against a requirement of 2,400, according to the release. .
“According to research institutes like We Are Social and Hootsuite, children spend at least 5 to 6 hours a day on the Internet. Such an interruption in psychological development at such a young age can cause these children to become depressed and suicidal.
In addition, an investigation by the Aachol Foundation indicates that of 364 students who committed suicide in the first eight months of this year, 194 (53.30%) were schoolchildren, the statement added.
The seminar ended with an open call to take these issues into account and to work together for a bright future for the next generations.
