Active Cities Training

TAFISA and the Liverpool John Moores University are offering capacity-building workshops tailored to your needs.

Active Cities Training


Starting Active City policies – whether at local or national level, is not always easy. National, regional authorities and municipalities do not always know what an Active City is, where to start, what elements to consider and mobilise, or in what direction to develop.
For this reason, TAFISA and the Liverpool John Moores University have developed the Triple AC Capacity-Building workshops, which will:

  • Raise awareness of the participants on:
    • The benefits of promoting Sport for All and physical activity (SAPA)
    • The significance of the city setting to promote SAPA
    • The definition of an Active City, including the concept and philosophy
    • Expected achievements, impact and legacy of Active City projects
  • Build the capacity of participants to develop strategies, initiatives, programmes and events to promote SAPA, and design Active Cities
  • Initiate and engage innovative thinking amongst participants
  • Offer participants the opportunity to exchange experiences, ideas, goals and expectations, and learn from each other.

Number of participants: up to 30
Duration: half-day to 2 working days (in-person or online)
Target groups:
Triple AC Capacity-Building Workshops can be adapted to the needs and expectations of a range of stakeholders including municipalities, national and regional authorities, NOCs, NGOs, etc.
They can be delivered to one single organisation that wishes to train its employees, or to a diversity of organisations and entities at the same time (for example, in partnership with a national authority that invites a number of cities).

Contact us for a one-on-one conference call, which will help us understand your objectives and draft a tailored programme!
