Designed to Move - A Physical Activity Action Agenda
A new Framework, designed to increase physical activity, has been released. The report is co-authored by the American College of Sports Medicine, Nike and the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education, with engagement from a broad base of experts from around the world. Over 70 expert and multi-sector organisations helped to develop the Framework and validate the underlying research.
The Framework is built around a shared vision of allowing people to reach their greatest potential. It simplifies the actions necessary to succeed into two major asks
- Create early positive experiences for children - so that there is a greater chance of them adopting physically active lifestyles for life
- Integrate physical activity into everyday life - by building cities and communities to allow people to move more overall.
Designed to Move aims to do two critical things:
- Leverage significant and powerful evidence to make the case for urgent investment in physical activity.
- Provide an authoritative consensus on the actions needed to address this crisis.
