Symposium on Building Towards Sustainable Physical Activity Behavior – Status, Programs and Approaches

Singapore, Singapore
02/08/2019
CRC Auditorium, National University of Singapore

BACKGROUND

Globally, more than 1.4 billion adults are at risk of developing or exacerbating diseases due to a lack of physical activity, according to the recent World Health Organization (WHO) study in 2018.

Physical inactivity is a complex and multi-factorial behavior whose determinants vary across countries. Over the past years, Singapore’s sedentary lifestyle influenced by rapid urbanization has been a public health concern with serious health implications. Lack of time or energy and its tropical climate further deter individuals from participating in physical activity.

OBJECTIVES

This symposium aims to:

  • Review the current status of physical activity in Singapore
  • Share national programs and guidelines for promoting and performing physical activity
  • Discuss technological tools for tracking and assessing physical activity; and
  • Highlight nutritional approaches and exercise strategies for maximizing health and physical performance.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Sport science, nutrition and health professionals, academia and research organizations, representatives from the government agencies, sport associations, food and beverage sectors, and relevant stakeholders.
