The 2020 Active Living Conference will be held February 2-5, 2020 in Orlando, FL, USA.

The conference brings together active living researchers and champions from over 30 disciplines to advance knowledge and action around active communities. The event is the premier venue for policy-relevant research and cross-sector exchange between scientists, practitioners and policy makers on how to create and sustain active living environments.
The 2020 Active Living Conference theme, Innovation and Imagination in Active Living, challenges us to be creative and to consider unique research approaches, partnerships and innovative strategies that promote fun and healthy opportunities for active living. Topics might include innovation by design, creative use of big data, health and nature, creative active play, interactive art, sport and health, technology, innovation in measurement, novel approaches in research translation and dissemination, and effective ”non-traditional” partnerships. These and other creative and “magical” topics would fit the theme of this conference.
Call for Abstracts
The Call for Abstracts is now open! Abstracts related to active living environments and policies in all settings are invited for submission. We encourage abstracts related to the conference theme (though this is not a requirement) and abstracts on research and practice/policies that inform strategies for increasing physical activity among racially and ethnically diverse populations, people with disabilities, and those living in lower-income communities who are at greatest risk for physical inactivity and its related diseases.
Review the full Call for Abstracts. Submissions are due August 16, 2019.
