Active living- Moving research into action

On this episode of the MOBILIZE Project Podcast, Professor Jens Troelsen, the leader of the Active Living Research Unit and currently Head of the Department for Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics at University of Southern Denmark shares valuable insights about the importance of active living for prevention and health promotion. He talks about some of the factors found to be associated with physical activity in the urban environment relevant for different age groups (e.g. walkability and bikeability, access to green areas and appropriate facilities, safety). The take home message is for people to integrate physically active in their daily lives whenever they have the opportunity (e.g. at home, at work, during leisure time).
