How might physical activity be a public health issue?

Light Night Learning is a series of summer learning events, which explore topical wellbeing issues in a creative and engaging way. Why make the most of the lighter evenings, and come along? These sessions are ideal for anyone who is currently working in the field of wellbeing, or is interested in studying or working in this area.

This workshop looks to blend academic understanding with real-life practice, by exploring the role that physical activity might have in public health work. Should physical activity be a job for public health teams? What quick wins can be had for our more sedentary populations? How much exercise does one even need to start feeling the (health) benefits?

This session is co-produced with Robin Ranson, Senior Health Improvement Practitioner at BCHUB Health Improvement Team.
