Let’s get physical
Physical activity is one of the core elements of the Federal Government’s new national sport plan, Sport 2030, which was launched at the National Press Club by Sports Minister, Senator Bridget McKenzie.
Sport 2030 is being promoted as a comprehensive plan to reshape the face of Australian sport and build a healthier, more physically active nation.
The objective is to get more Australians more active, more often, drive sporting excellence and success, safeguard the integrity of sport, and strengthen the sports industry.
It will position sport and physical activity through the next decade and beyond for all Australians and reflects the Government’s strong commitment to link sport, physical activity, and preventive health.
Under Sport 2030, the Government will reframe sport policy to include physical activity, as well as organised and high-performance sport, and commit to reducing inactivity among Australians by 15 per cent by 2030.
This will mean that participation in sport and physical activity will be ramped up across the country, so every Australian can be either playing sport, be part of it, or engaged in healthy, active living.
