Abstract

The health and economic burden of physical inactivity is substantial and showing few signs of decline despite increased attention in policy agendas globally. To address this pandemic, we need to look beyond the health sector and reimagine our environments into places that get us moving more, and sitting less. Governments are investing in active transportation and sustainable development projects in light of their health, economic and environmental promise. But who stands to benefit from these investments, and in what context?
