Event themes, objectives and relevance

Well-being is now firmly on the agenda for many organisations – health, education, communities, the elderly, workplaces. Research shows that being physically active can improve self-esteem and feelings of self-efficacy as well as counteract depression and increase positive feelings and social engagement. This means that anyone interested in well-being and confidence must factor in the importance of physical activity.

This inspiring and original event was designed to –

  • Introduce participants to some of the research findings on physical activity and its impact on confidence and well-being.
  • Inform participants on the amount and type of exercise that is beneficial.
  • Show how exercising in a green environment is particularly good for well-being.
  • Provide some examples of how physical activity can be incorporated into various settings with different client groups.
