Global Active City Forum - Suzhou, China
TAFISA, the Chinese General Sport Administration and the Active Well-being Initiative have partnered to organise the first-ever national Global Active City Forum in Suzhou, China, on November 22 – 24, 2018.
The event, which was also the opportunity for the TAFISA and ASFAA Board of Directors to hold their annual meetings, gathered more than 150 participants from all over the world and 30 Chinese cities.
The presence of Chinese dignitaries sent a strong signal to the world documenting the will of China to develop Active Cities for the benefits of its citizens. Their commitment was highlighted through the Suzhou Declaration that was adopted during the closing ceremony.
The Forum served as a platform for Chinese and invited cities to exchange views and interesting approaches on how to make their citizens more active. Other high-level speakers contributed to the debate with their experiences from various parts of the globe.
