About the project

Building physical activity into your travel routine

How the survey works

What is Physical Activity?

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines Physical activity is defined as any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that requires energy expenditure – including activities undertaken while working, playing, carrying out household chores, travelling, and engaging in recreational pursuits.

It recommends:

  • for children/adolescents: 60 mins of moderate to vigorous intensity per day;
  • for adults (18+): 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity per week.
