At today’s meeting the Turkmen leader mentioned again the problem of an inactive way of life of teenagers of “computer” generation that is repeatedly raised by him.

This problem is global, it throws a challenge to all mankind, judging by the unfavorable data of World Health Organization. Last report the WHO says that about 80 % of all teenagers in the world conduct a passive way of life.
