KOMBINE – Community-Based Physical Activity Promotion to Implement National Recommendations


Kombine Logo

The European Union and the World Health Organization recommend the development of national recommendations to promote a physically active lifestyle for the whole population.

In Germany, National Recommendations for Physical Activity and Physical Activity Promotion were first developed and disseminated in 2016.

As part of the project KOMBINE (Community-based physical activity promotion for the implementation of the National Recommendations) these National Recommendations are to be implemented in the local community.

KOMBINE aims to develop and evaluate a concept for community-based physical activity promotion. By focusing on people with social disadvantages the project contributes to an improvement in health equity.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop on “Community-Based Physical Activity Promotion – Experiences from the Model Communities” planned for the 22nd of April 2020 in Frankfurt, has been postponed and will hopefully take place in the fall of 2020.

We will let you know about a concrete date in the coming weeks.

Thank you very much for your interest!
Stay healthy!
