Consulting & About Us

Active Living Research Consulting

Since 2001, ALR has been at the forefront of building evidence on how to create communities that increase opportunities for physical activity. We have learned that communities designed for activity are better for health, economic vitality, and environmental sustainability.

Our mission is to work with governments, the private sector, and advocacy groups to apply the lessons of research to building great communities.
