We are learning more about the conditions needed to enable active lives. Our evaluation of a whole system approach to physical activity suggests that there are five programme theories that may help us understand what’s needed to create sustainable changes that enable increased activity.

To help explain what we mean by a whole system approach, and the work we are doing through GM Moving, we have produced this animation.

Over the past 6 months our evaluation team, the Substance consortium, have shared a deeper understanding around our five programme theories:

  • Strategic leadership enabling collective leadership
  • Effective work across and between sectors
  • Transforming governance and process
  • Learning and adapting
  • Growing local people and assets

We are learning more about how we can work as a system to support active lives, and want to share this learning with you. We have produced a short summary, with key reflection questions, and some explainer videos to help talk through some of theory that has led to the development of these five programme theories.

Read the summary here.
