The Australian Federal Government launched the historic first National Sport 2030 Plan on August 1, 2018. This most welcome and significant document aims to make Australia the most active and healthy sporting nation, known for its integrity and sporting success. ACSEP is proud to support this document as it aligns with many of ACSEP’s values including integrity, leadership, excellence and teamwork. Most importantly it targets all members of the community to be more engaged in sport and physical activity throughout every stage of their life, aiming to reduce inactivity amongst all Australians by 15% by 2030 in line with the recent World Health Organisation 2018 Physical Activity Plan.
ACSEP Fellow, Past President and Chief Medical Officer of the Australian Institute of Sport, Dr. David Hughes features in the Move it AUS campaign with his message below to Find your 30.
ACSEP is perfectly positioned to lead and promote the incorporation of safe exercise and physical activity into the daily lives of all members of the community, whether healthy, with injury, illness or chronic disease. We will continue to meet the high performance sports medicine and sports integrity needs of our elite athletes. We will continue to foster strong relationships with all external stakeholders, not just sport and health, to champion this much needed change in our physical activity culture.
So Move it Australia and find your 30!
