Engaging the Inactive
How much physical activity do you engage with every week? Do you do enough? Statistics suggest at least 35% of adults in the UK do not do enough to meet the Chief Medical Officer's guidelines of 150 minutes of moderately intense exercise every week, and there are worrying signs that children are not meeting their targets in sufficient numbers for their long-term health into adulthood.
So what are the key barriers to exercise amongst the population, and how might we convince the inactive to exercise even a little bit more than they do now? In this engaging and informative workshop, you'll not only appreciate these issues and the factors that underpin inactivity, but also set about convincing a set of fictitious neighbours to get more active, more often, using your artistic skills rather than words. And what simple 'remedy' in this world could we encourage people to take up that will not only get them fitter, but also in many cases halve the risk of chronic illnesses so prevalent in the UK population?
