Webinar: COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 experience has been one of extremes, with the devastating impact on health and wellbeing, along with the economic impact of a global business shut down. One positive aspect has been an increase in walking and cycling, as other forms of exercise such as gyms and organised sports closed. This change was achieved without any physical activity campaigns and has resulted in a positive physical activity outcome far greater than any health or travel behaviour change campaign in living memory.

We have the opportunity to enable the physical activity increase to continue, before the community fall back to old habits.

As a starting point, CWANZ will enable the discussion via webinar with leading experts from Australia and New Zealand, exploring how increases in walking and cycling have happened and what we can learn from the experience to continue the positive change.
