Designing a city where people get out and get moving
Physical activity used to be just part of everyday life, now it has been structured out of our lives. Many people sit in a car to get everywhere and they sit at school or work, and after work.
Good urban design for transport, green spaces, buildings and neighbourhoods can increase our amount of physical activity by as much as a third. Planning for cycling, walking and physical play can help keep children and adults in healthy bodies through a lifetime.
