Active Living through Citizen Science: An Intergenerational Approach
This project seeks to have residents identify features of their neighbourhood environments that influence participation in leisure and transport physical activity through the engagement of adolescent and older adult New Zealand residents. We hope to improve the local environment and physical activity levels within the New Zealand context by enabling a citizen-partnership to enter into productive, informed dialogue with local authorities and planners. Researchers investigate aims 1 & 2 within the context of neighbourhoods of Māori communities.

Can intergenerational citizen science activities contribute to designing more supportive urban neighbourhoods for physical activity?
