The ISPAH International Congress on Physical Activity and Public Health is one of the key global forums on physical activity and public health. In 2016, leading experts in research and practice presented keynotes on creating active cities, behavioural economics and applications of the latest technology. The congress had a strong focus on strengthening capacity and research translation to support countries achieving the global goal of 10% reduction of physical inactivity by 2025.
