Join us for "Are V4 Living Actively?" ISBNPA satellite meeting in beautiful city of Olomouc!

Two decades of research and evaluation of community interventions and policies have produced considerable knowledge about the benefits of designing communities that promote daily physical activity for everyone.

However, much remains to be learned about outcomes of active living environmental and policy initiatives. That is especially true for countries of Visegrad region (The V4 – Czech Republic,Slovakia, Poland and Hungary).

The world leading experts in field of active living research to be present in Czech Republic during main annual ISBNPA meeting in Prague. We would like to utilize the exceptional opportunity and create a platform to share experience with local scientific community.
