She examined the the inactivity challenge from a policy perspectives and proposed ways in which the industry can collaborate at both global and local level to drive change and resolve current challenges.

Professor Rob Copeland from the University of Sheffield, UK demonstrated the powerful benefits of co-locating physical activity, health and social services.
