Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, has been confirmed as a keynote speaker for the ukactive National Summit taking place today (Wednesday 4 November).

Burnham is one of five keynotes scheduled for the day, with Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson (ukactive chair), Ben Page (CEO, Ipsos MORI), Jo Stevens (shadow culture secretary), Debbie Weekes-Bernard (deputy mayor of London) and Rebecca Marmot (chief sustainability officer, Unilever) also giving speeches.

All five will offer their views on the role of the physical activity sector in supporting the nation's recovery from the Coronavirus crisis – and improving the long-term health, wellbeing and resilience of the nation.

Today's session – titled "a new vision for physical activity" – will be the first of four sessions held under the ukactive National Summit banner.

Normally a one-day conference, the event will this year be held as a series of free online sessions taking place every Wednesday throughout November.

The next session, titled "Measuring effective interventions in health", will take place on Wednesday 11 November. It will explore impactful research on the benefits of physical activity for health, economy and social connectedness – and how the research can be used to inform effective policy interventions.

Huw Edwards, CEO of ukactive, said: “As the sector endures the continued impact of COVID-19, the National Summit will lead a diversity of ideas and views to help our thinking on the future role we play in the communities we serve.
