Description of pledge activities

By encouraging physical activity in everyday life, the Netherlands' ambition is that 75% of the Dutch population will comply with the exercise guidelines by 2040. 

We are currently fully engaged in shaping the 'Movement Alliance' mentioned, as a follow up on the National Prevention Agreement. In this alliance, we will work with other ministries and civil society organizations to formulate shared ambitions and objectives and to make agreements about actions and interventions that will contribute to the objective to make physical activity a normal part of daily life.

Expected measurable outcome

  • Establish the 'Movement Alliance'.
