PHASE has evolved from the Asia Pacific Physical Education Conference (APPEC) which was a dedicated Physical Education & Wellness event for the Asia Pacific region starting in 2015.

Evidence demonstrates the enormous benefits for mental and physical health that come from being active outdoors and from engaging with one's surroundings. Parkour Generations' programmes teach you how to identify what movement and exercises possibilities are afforded to us by the environment, built structures and natural architecture.

Young people have a natural desire to explore the world around them and apply their physicality to it. Physical education should embrace this desire and utilise it to encourage movement and activity, and to develop an affinity between young people and their environment. School grounds typically provide endless opportunities for movement activities, games and challenges, and with the right training you will be able to guide sessions outdoors safely, smoothly and productively.

An added benefit is the development of respect for their environment among young people, as well as adaptability, resilience and creativity.
