Research and Practice/Policy Focus Areas

Our aim is to make the ALR conference the premier venue for policy-relevant research and cross sector exchange between scientists, practitioners and policy makers on how to create and sustain active living environments.

The conference agenda will have two focus areas: 1) research and 2) practice/policy. The goal of including these focus areas is to encourage a broad audience to attend the conference and provide opportunities for exchange on how to use evidence to increase physical activity in many settings. It is anticipated that the programme will be comprised of approximately 2/3 research-oriented and 1/3 practice/policy-oriented presentations, with overlap welcomed. Research and practice/policy presentations will be integrated and organised by topic area.
