Where we work, live and play matters
Active environments looks at how the design of our neighbourhoods and how we use them play a role in how likely we are to be active. And this can make a real difference to our health and wellbeing.
On this page you can find information about our work to support active environments in Norfolk.
We are also proud to support the launch of a new information hub to help organisations within the physical activity sector reduce their environmental impact. You can find this below.
Activity, Sustainability, and Climate Change
We want more people to feel willing and able to travel actively in Norfolk.
Improvements in our local infrastructure and neighbourhood design will help make active travel convenient. The idea is to make it just as convenient as using a car. As more people choose to travel actively, we’ll be helping to reduce carbon emissions. And when we create sustainable travel behaviours we are helping reduce the impact of climate change.
We believe a joined-up approach to improving active travel opportunities is key. Creating active outdoor opportunities will benefit the health of our residents and our environment, and create sustainable change.
How we create Active Environments
We work with a range of stakeholders including local authorities, built environment professionals, and communities.
We work to build consensus, and also raise standards of infrastructure design and implementation.
Together, we can improve people’s ability, motivation and opportunity to be active in the places where they live, work, and play.
