The project “ZielBewegung” aims to develop target group-specific policy briefs for physical activity promotion in Germany geared at decisionmakers from policy and practice.
Specifically, it will develop policy briefs for the following target groups: adults (18-65 years), older adults (65+ years) and adults with noncommunicable diseases. The overviews will be developed in a co-design process of researchers and ministry officials (Federal Ministry of Health) and will be disseminated widely among key stakeholders in policy and practice.
The project directly follows up on a policy brief for children and adolescents developed by the WHO Collaborating Centre for Physical Activity and Public Health at DSS in 2021/22. This policy brief summarizes key results and conclusions for decision makers (link) and is accomplished by a scientific background document (link). The three new “ZielBewegung” documents will complement the policy brief on children and adolescents and use its custom methodology as a conceptual basis.
