The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the vital importance of physical activity for mental and physical health and it has also exacerbated inequities. The current provision of opportunities and safe environments to enable everyone to be active is fragmented, uneven and unfair. This must change.

This final webinar in the reINVENT series will launch a global call for stronger collective action to deliver a fairer and more inclusive system that provides equitable opportunities for all people to be active.

Join us to hear key actions and practical examples of how we can overcome the bottlenecks and create a more active healthier world.
