Encouraging people from all backgrounds, and of all abilities, to engage in sport and physical activity is fundamentally good for society. But in the post-pandemic world getting people moving has become increasingly challenging. OpenActive is a UK community initiative led by Sport England and the ODI that seeks to unlock sport and physical activity data, making it easier for everyone to find and book activities. In this session representatives from sports bodies, leisure operators and other OpenActive stakeholders will discuss the OpenActive initiative and how it is making sport more accessible and transforming lives by unlocking data.
