We put together an infographic with a list of tried-and-tested approaches that our partner cities have used to encourage and empower residents to become more active in their daily lives. Their ideas have helped to shape our Global Active City model, which can be applied to cities and towns of all sizes and particular local needs.

Their proposals include measuring and analysing physical activity levels; encouraging organisations from different sectors to work together; and making public spaces, physical activity centres and parks open to everyone, with flexible opening hours and accessibility.

An infographic showing good practices from active cities: Physical activity levels are measured and analysed. Public and private organisations work together (such as local authorities, health services, private companies, schools, community groups). There are various public spaces, physical activity centres and parks with flexible opening hours and accessibility. Events leave a legacy by encouraging people to take up regular physical activity. Residents are involved in the search for solutions to their health problems. Sports and physical activities are accessible to everyone. There is an inspiring brand to promote activities and projects. Infrastructure is in place to encourage active transport. Urban planners consider opportunities for physical activity. The city is part of a network of active cities which learn from each other.
