As we move into 2020 the focus for Active Geelong continues to evolve. Last year we made great strides with the medical community and workplaces and this year we’re looking forward to working with the broader community to inspire and empower movement.
In October, we launched our new website which has been designed to provide workplaces and individuals with resources and links to support physical activity. If you haven’t already, sign up as a Movement Champion here and help make Geelong Australia’s most active city.
We were involved in a very interesting piece of research that looked at how best to increase conversations about physical activity between doctors and their patients in partnership with our Movement Maker, Deakin University. We look forward to sharing more about this research in our next edition.
This year we’re looking forward to growing our partnership with PlaySport which will help people to better access physical activities in our local area. Find out more about this partnership here.
We will be working with the broader community to better understand the barriers and enablers to being active to be able to connect people with physical activity opportunities that are right for them.
We’ll also continue to grow the workplaces program and look forward to sharing with businesses some exciting work done in partnership with the London Business School on physical activity in the workplace.
If you haven’t had the chance yet today, schedule in some time to get your 30 minutes of movement. Together, we can make Geelong Australia’s most active city.
