Over six million Australians aged between 18 and 64 are not sufficiently active, despite wanting to experience the range of benefits that come with being active. Too often the blame for inactivity is levelled at the individual.
This is unfair.
Join our mission to inspire and support a more active nation. With chronic diseases like obesity, mental health and heart disease at an all-time high, and the evidence of how physical activity can prevent and effectively treat these issues, ESSA is campaigning:
- for all Australians to get more active
- to government and community stakeholders for more equitable access to exercise services and programs to support all Australians to become more physically active.
Several Australian states and territories are heading into elections this year and ESSA is advocating to stakeholders in political parties and non-government organisations across allied health, sport and recreation, and public, private and community health sectors to commit to building a nation where everyone is supported to be active.
Australians deserve better support and more access to exercise services and programs to become more physically active.
