The PAUSE Challenge is an activity that promotes the balanced use of the Internet and screens in order to minimize the risks associated with screen addiction. This summer, invite your counselors to meet the proposed challenges with their campers. 

PAUSE wishes to become a movement that encourages Quebecers to retake control of their Internet use and prioritize quality connections with real meaning, online and off-line. The PAUSE Challenge is a joint initiative put forward by the Fondation Tremplin Santé and Capsana, the organization that created PAUSE.

Why take on the PAUSE Challenge?

To step back and: 

  • Rediscover the benefits of screen-free times. 
  • Better understand your relationship with screens. 
  • Become more aware of the place that technology occupies in our daily lives. 
  • Watch the stars burn that much brighter at night, and not your counselors’ cell phones or computer screens. 
  • Bring back true laughter instead of texted HAHAHA’s. 

And then reconnect: 

  • In a more mindful way and not as a reflex, by maintaining control. 
  • By focusing on online activities that are good for us.
