ACTIVE NATION DAY
Active Nation Day is a movement created in 2012 by Lorna Jane to inspire women, their families, communities, cities and the world to live a more Active Life. Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980, with 39% of the adult population now overweight and 1.9 billion of the world’s population not getting sufficient exercise.
Active Nation Day falls on the last Sunday of every September, to recognize and celebrate this day we host events all over the world to encourage women to mark their commitment to Active Living by getting out and moving their bodies. We think there should be a day dedicated to Active Living – a day where people are asked to consider putting their health and fitness first – resetting their commitment and inspiring others to do the same. In 2015 we started a petition to have a day of Active Living recognized on the Australian calendar and collected over 50,000 signatures of support, add yours here. This global movement was celebrated in over 11 countries last year with over 300 events registered by individuals for their local communities to join.
