  • ACW IS A DATA-DRIVEN STUDY

    While there have been many attempts at qualitative or anecdotal networking of cities around activity in the past, a global data-based benchmarking programme of this comprehensive scale and depth is unprecedented, and ACW will be setting a new global standard in terms of measurement, analysis and insight for physical activity in cities.

  • ACW IS A GLOBAL LEARNING TOOL

    We conduct benchmarking across our ACW cities aiming to pinpoint genuine best practices and create a unique network of knowledge. Benchmarking provides cities with the unique opportunity to uncover global trends, identify anomalies and learn from others around effective physical activity interventions.

  • ACW IS A NETWORK OF LIKE-MINDED CITIES

    ACW is a global network of like-minded, aspirational cities that believe in the power of sport and physical activity to transform their cities for the better. Through the annual conferences and informal connections, ACW cities can share best practices, support each other in collaboration, and together develop solutions that benefit everyone.

ACW provides data-driven insight and analysis on drivers and outcomes of physical activity

The ACW Framework

1. What works and what doesn't? We measure the impact of demographics and interventions on physical activity

2. What are the current trends? We create a detailed physical activity profile for each city

3. Why does it matter? We calculate the value created by physical activity for the city

ACW provides cities with actionable policy insights and access to a network of cities sharing knowledge and learnings
