Get Moving At Work: Walk The Block Next Tuesday

Posted in Events, Movements by Kate Archdeacon on May 11th, 2011

Source: Victoria Walks

Victoria Walks is aiming to combat workplace physical inactivity by developing the event – Walk the Block. The aim is simple: to get people away from their desks and onto their feet. Walk the Block will be a fun and lively event that brings together employees from corporate organisations, government departments and other workplaces across Victoria to walk their block on Tuesday 17 May (download flyer).

The event has been developed by Victoria Walks to promote four simple workplace walking ideas:

  • ‘In your stride’ – quick and easy tips to keep staff moving at work
  • Walking meetings – step out for active and productive conversations
  • Walkabout inductions – for new staff to learn what is close by
  • Walking groups – regular walks for fit and friendly workplaces.

Resources for each of these initiatives will be sent to workplaces so that walking can easily be incorporated into organisations’ working culture.

Register as an individual or an organisation.
