Live Well Bellarine - Be Active

Being active and moving more helps keep us healthy and happy.  There are many reasons why it can be hard to be active and many ways we can work together to try to make it easier.

We are working with others in our community to create supportive, safe and welcoming environments for children, young people and their families to be active.

We know that a great way to move more during our day is through active travel. This can include walking, cycling, or taking public transport. We want to make it easier, safer and more enjoyable to get around the community without a car.

We are also supporting women and girls to be active. We know that when women and girls feel supported, safe and welcome, they are more likely to get involved or try new ways to be active and much more likely to feel good about being active.

Active OUR Way is a new project that aims to get more children, young people and families on the Bellarine Peninsula moving more often, in ways that suit them! 

We are proud to be working closely with the students, families and staff from 3 schools across the Bellarine, to help develop and plan the project for each community. 

In August this year, over 120 students took part in design workshops to help brainstorm and plan what will happen within each community during the Active OUR Way project. Students were asked how they would like to be more active in their community and to share their ideas on how we could make that happen. Students designed their own Active OUR Way activities and thought of ways to make their activities fun and welcoming for all. 

This project is supported by VicHealth through a JumpStart grant.
