Make Your Move

In 2019, Council's Sport and Recreation team launched its new health and wellness campaign entitled ‘Make Your Move’ (MYM). This campaign will raise the profile of health, wellness and participation in sport and recreation activity across the City of Greater Dandenong.

 

Why is Making Your Move important?

 Make Your Move Physical Activity Strategy 2020-2030

The Make Your Move Physical Activity Strategy 2020-2030 will guide services, programs, resources and infrastructure to ensure community participation.

Council recently undertook extensive consultation and research to find out how active our community are, what prevents them from being active and how Greater Dandenong compares to the rest of Victoria.

This consultation highlighted a number of interesting key findings such as:

  • Only 49 per cent of Greater Dandenong residents meet the physical activity guidelines of 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise per day.

We also know, the way people participate in physical activity is changing due to:

Calendar

Increasingly busy and time-fragmented lifestyles.

  Stretching

A desire for greater flexibility about when and how people access opportunities.

Cost

The cost of participating in organised sport is increasing.

Group

There are many more opportunities available to choose from.

Teaching There is a lack of health and physical literacy amongst the community, particulary migrant and refugee communities.

This information and many more key findings can be found on the following documents:

 Have your Say

As part of the development of Council's new strategy a Discussion Paper has been developed.

  • Does the Discussion Paper identify the key opportunities to improve participation in physical activity?
  • What do you feel are the top three priorities to you or your family that Council needs to address for the community to improve participation in physical activity?
  • Is there anything you feel is missing from the Discussion Paper?
  • Any other comments?

You can provide feedback until 5pm, Friday 28 February 2020.
