Speakers included academics (Prof. Nanette Mutrie, University of Edinburgh 'The Iconnect project: evaluating natural experiments of improved walking and cycling infrastructure' and Prof. Andy Jones, University of East Anglia and CEDAR 'Staying close to home - how important are environments around home for physical activity?') and policy related groups (Sharon Allison, Physical Activity and Health Alliance Coordinator, NHS Health Scotland 'Physical activity and the environment: a policy update' and Ian Findlay, Chief Officer, Paths for all 'A walkers perspective of the environment'. These talks were followed by a group discussion to consider the future for work in this area. The event was oversubscribed with 40 attendees and a waiting list of 22. Audience members were both from academia (23) and external organistions (17 including NHS Lothian, The Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research, Edinburgh Leisure and Sustrans).
