The announcement of ‘Active Uprising’ in Greater Manchester is really exciting. Having worked with Manchester City Council and others to make the case for ukactive to make the move to Manchester, it is now a reality!

Greater Manchester Moving, signifies our collective intent to get 75% of our communities active by 2025. ‘Active Uprising’ will shine a spotlight on what we are doing in pursuit of this ambition, and also bring the UK’s leading public and private sector partners to this fantastic City to develop, to innovate and to create change! Training, recognition and creating connections, all finished off with a festival of activity, culminating in highlighting the inactivity crisis and more importantly how we are collectively tackling this on a global stage.

ukactive’s goal matches the drive and ambition of Greater Manchester, and GreaterSport are delighted to work with our local partners and ukactive to create a global movement to meet the physical activity challenge. #GMMoving
