Abstract
My Masters thesis is a study of phenomenon, feedback loop. Specially focusing on the behaviour changing possibilities, which have been found out to effective in a feedback loop.

Feedback loop can be divided in four different stages.
1.Evidence
2.Relevance
3.Consequence
4. Action

The problem I wanted to find a solution was the increasing lack of excersice and activity among children. According WHO childhood obesity is one of the biggest
