  1. Lack of multi-stakeholder and multi-level governance approach, with strong partnerships at the local level.
  2. - How can the city and sports organization define and share with each other goals and objectives of the MOVEment spaces partnership and share how collaborative work could help to achieve each other goals with the basis of establishing an effective and fruitful collaboration? - How to develop the leadership? - What are everyone’s responsibilities in the community? What is your responsibility?
  3. What’s the impact of walking and cycling on urban congestion? What happens when you remove a car lane to put in a new bicycle lane? Or you give pedestrians more time to cross a busy road? Several cities have made these improvements and measured their impacts. How to monitor and evaluate the success of initiatives in MOVEment spaces?
  4. - What is the area of the city you would like to develop the activity for? - Who is living in the around the area? - Who are the groups/individuals that are not already participating? - What kind of spaces you have in your city – outdoor and indoor – that can offer activities? - Would you like to change these spaces?

  6. - What ways could you build connection among people and collaboration into your activity? - How could you involve volunteers to help people create connections and links with each other during the activities? - How could you support communities to link with each other about their interventions and benefit from the work done?

  9. How to advocate for MOVEment spaces? How to build the case? What is the needed evidence? What are success factors and principles of advocacy? What are barriers and challenges in advocacy process? What are the right activities? What is the success story you know?
  10. Encouraging more physical activity in the cities requires that such efforts are part of strategic political priorities. A thorough understanding of the current state of each individual city is required: what are currently the most significant barriers to promoting physical activity? What could other priority challenges be effectively coupled with efforts to promote physical activity? In which areas in the cities interventions have the biggest impact? What population should new policies and strategies target or benefit? Which aspects of people’s everyday life should be prioritized?
  11. How to promote that active cities are an investment in developing greater human, economic, social and environmental capital?

  14. Challenges stated by partners - Lack of partnership with Swimming federation and other stakeholders - Swimming facilities in bigger cities - Quality of the water in the public open water spaces - The main challenge is to increase the number of users and place the service as an active offer to enjoy the beach. The consolidation of groups of participants like schools and the link with tourist, providing a different experience in the beach.
  15. - Sustainable / longterm partnership in local communities between sports club and municipality. It is easy to agree for an event, then for the sustainable activation - Organised Biking in the city: The challenge in the early stages is in finding a suitable venue from where to start. Other practical challenges include the cost of the bikes, managing repairs etc and also storing the bikes which are all shapes and sizes. - The ability to invoke civic responsibility on the streets within the city. There is reluctance in some circumstances for people to offer their time or services to fill the necessary volunteering roles, such as leafleting and stewarding. It is challenging to deliver a successful road closure without the willingness of residents to fulfill these duties. - To set the rules of use of the public spaces and the skate parks etc and promote that
  16. One of the most asked questions is - how to secure funding for our outdoor physical activity event?
  17. The main challenges of Active Parks in Barcelona are how to increase the engagement of men. In certain cases and circumstances, the same participants are leading the activity. It becomes more than a physical activity, it means a meeting point. Participants discover the potentiality of the parks and green areas as a healthcare environment. Using these motivations to use parks, the areas are respected and the rest of people respect those who participate in the activity regularly.
  18. Park maintenance/reputation: One of the parks used has a bad reputation locally, due to various crime-related incidents such as stabbings and historical drug use taking place. Understandably this led to a number of participants mentioning that they felt uncomfortable running in the park or would do on their own. This continues to be overcome by the concept of running as part of a group being promoted to all participants continuously.
  19. The main challenges have been establishing what works well and how to change what isn't working well. For example, if a session isn't well attended we have to look at if its the right time, the right activity, the right instructor for the session. If we are targetting the right people or if we are just putting these sessions on because we think they will work. This is why it is so important to listen to our outside partners and participants to encourage good communication and establish good practice.
  20. People want a greater say in how their local parks and public spaces are managed, but quite often no one asks them!
  21. Main challenges for cities in the coming decade is how to make citizens become physically active.
