Active Oxfordshire – Healthy Active Children Conference, book by 9th November

Bookings for the Oxfordshire Healthy Active Children Conference are closing soon!

We may not be able to come together in person this year, but the conference remains as important as ever. We know that currently only 19% of children nationally are getting their 60 active minutes a day, with mental health issues among our young people in Oxfordshire continuing to rise. This is why we’ve launched our new Active 60 campaign, so that we can work together to get Oxfordshire’s children active and protect their physical and mental well-being.

This year we will be offering the conference in a more flexible, and virtual way for local authority partners, charities, youth organisations, teachers, academics, practitioners and those with lived experience so we can collectively share learning and network across sectors to tackle the issue of childhood physical inactivity in Oxfordshire.

Some of themes covered will include family-based interventions, breaking down barriers to cycling, young voices on physical activity, sport to tackle anti-social behaviour, Whole System Approach to Healthy Weight, Active Design, Physical Activity and Mental Health during a Pandemic, Inclusion and much more.

Please see the list of the free open sessions here: Open Session PDF.
