Birmingham, UK

Birmingham, the UK’s second-largest city, will host the 8th MOVE Congress. Birmingham is a city that is leaping forward in physical activity promotion, proving it has successful strategies to reach some of the hardest to reach members of the community through innovative physical activity initiatives such as Active Parks, Big Birmingham Bikes, Active Streets, and other forms of free physical activity, both indoors and outdoors. With 8,000 acres of open parkland, the city is one of the greenest in the country so there’s plenty to explore. Get ready to explore the city with us in October.
