Whilst inactivity and inequality exist across the life course, early and later life are particularly important age groups. A positive experience of physical activity helps children develop the physical competence and confidence that ensures movement is a lifelong habit. Meanwhile, helping people to age well by being active enables them to live a longer, healthier life.
In busy modern lifestyles, anyone can find it difficult to form and maintain active habits. Everyday movement can be an accessible way for people to make small changes in their lives and move more in and around where they live and work.
Devon’s wonderful outdoor environment is a significant and unique asset for people to connect to and move in. But it is threatened by the global climate emergency and other environmental pressures, and we must help to protect it for future generations.
Movement with communities is pivotal to unlocking the many benefits of physical activity in the right way, for those people that can benefit the most. Within Devon’s communities are the knowledge and the assets needed to address the various inequalities and barriers that exist. Crucial to this are people and organisations that enable others. They are key to helping people to move more.
Movement for health and wellbeing is important because improved physical and mental wellbeing are two of the most significant benefits of physical activity. The inter-relationship between inequality and poor health and wellbeing makes preventative, community focused approaches a priority.
