Executive summary

OMO, a detergent brand with a global philosophy of Dirt is Good, promotes an active lifestyle, based on the idea that playing and getting dirty is crucial for kids' learning and development. But in the Middle East, owing to cultural reasons and social norms, dirt isn't good, and children are not encouraged to go outside, play and get dirty. Instead, parents substitute outdoor play with digital devices, making kids today the least active in history.
