New York City has held annual Fit City conferences since 2006 to bring together multiple disciplines – health, planning, transport and industry - to find collective solutions and co-benefits from encouraging more people to to be more active more often. Interagency Fit Conferences have subsequently been hosted throughout North America and internationally.
NSW hosted the inaugral Australian Fit City Conference - FitNSW - in February 2014, emerging from the Integrating Health, Active Travel and Land Use Planning interagency forum held at Parliament House in Sydney in 2013.
FitNSW has become an annual conference to showcase international and NSW best practice built environment and planning initiatives to encourage increased levels of physical activity. Active Living NSW will continue to run the FitNSW annual events. We are currently in the planning stages for a 2018 event.
