Event description

An opportunity for organisations, communities and individuals to work together to help people in Gloucestershire get active.

We can move is Gloucestershire's social movement that brings together organisations, communities and individuals that want to work together to help people in Gloucestershire get active.

In Gloucestershire, almost a quarter of people are not active. By working together, we want to remove any barriers and support people to get active for not only their physical health but their mental health too.

This event aims to brings people together to help make that vision a reality.

The event is open to anyone in Gloucestershire that supports others to get active, such as those who write the county's policies, funders, community groups, activity providers and key individuals who can support people to get moving.

The event will be made up of nine sessions, three in the morning, three around midday and three in the afternoon. Attendees can choose to attend one session in each slot. Each session will be followed by a break.

This event is a great opportunity for you to meet like minded people who support people to get active. Please use the breaks as a time to network as well as the dedicated networking time from 3:30pm - 4:30pm.
