Combating the sedentary lifestyle

Revue 48 of Sport and Citizenship Think tank


The Covid-19 health crisis has brought whole sectors of society to a halt. In response to the urgent need to limit the spread of the virus, lockdowns were declared, so we have all lived through an extraordinary time. Yet, in spite of the uncertainties concerning health and finance, this period has given us time to think about the king of society we would like to build after the crisis.

In the world which many people are looking forward to after the crisis, sport and physical activity will definitely have an important role, whether it is as force for increased mobility,  an education lever, or a creator of social bonds.

We have been convinced of this for years in our Think tank as this special focus on combating the sedentary lifestyle shows. Although this revue had its inception before the current crisis, it makes a lot of sense in the period we are living through.

This revue was produced with the support of the Aplus Group. We are very grateful for their confidence in us and their commitment to preventing health problems through physical activity.
