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.

 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.

The Draft Strategy and Implementation Plan are now available for the community to view:
