Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2002 release by the World Health Organization of the Active Ageing: A Policy Framework, followed by the 2010 Global recommendations on physical activity for health have brought active ageing to the forefront of international public health awareness; this awareness was re-affirmed with the 2010 Toronto Charter for Physical Activity: A Global Call for Action which provides information for organizations and individuals interested in promoting physical activity can use this Charter to influence and unite decision makers, at national, regional and local levels, to achieve a shared goal. Inactivity in older people affects not only physical and mental health but also the individual's ability to cope with symptoms of disease, to be socially engaged and to enjoy a good quality of life. This special issue has a broad focus on active ageing, increasing physical activity but also reducing sedentary behaviour, a distinctly different risk factor for ill-health, with the ultimate goal to continue to build scientific knowledge on how we can reduce the public health burden of inactivity in older people worldwide. Both empirical and review paper submissions are welcome, on any topic relevant to health and active ageing. Papers on reducing sedentary behaviour are particularly welcome.
