Measuring what matters

“Prioritising our collective wellbeing will require radical change in what we measure and how we measure progress.

Building physical activity into public spaces

“The Coronavirus crisis has demonstrated the importance of public spaces such as schools, high streets and workplaces to our communities. These spaces allow local residents and communities to connect, grow and learn together – but many are still underutilised. There is an unmissable opportunity to rethink our nation’s public spaces to produce lasting behaviour change and better serve the needs of the community. This session will identify international best practice around using existing public spaces to support physical activity participation and collective wellbeing.”

Empowering people 

“Daily physical activity has played a vital role in the resilience of people across the UK during the coronavirus crisis, and it will be critical for our nation’s future wellbeing and long-term health. This session will feature experts across different fields speaking about the impact of physical activity on health and social outcomes, and identify opportunities for the physical activity sector to engage traditionally inactive groups.”
