Our strategy - Towards an Active Nation
Our strategy Towards an Active Nation sets out our vision that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or ability, should feel able to take part in sport or activity for the benefits it brings. Active travel is widely recognised for its role in supporting this.
We’re shining a light on the huge impact environmental prompts and cues can have in changing people’s behaviour, which is why we’re championing Active Design alongside active travel.
Active Design promotes physical activity, health and stronger communities through the way we design and build our towns and cities.
It has 10 principles to inspire and inform the layout of cities, towns, villages, neighbourhoods, buildings, streets and open spaces, to create more opportunities for physical activity.
