How does Time Use and availability affect the associations between Activity Space, the environment and Physical Activity among European Adults?

Project description

Timing European adults’ physical activity

Lack of physical activity can increase the risk of people developing non-communicable diseases. Two thirds of the adult population (aged 15 years or more) in the European Union do not reach recommended levels of physical activity (at least 150 minutes per week). The two most cited reasons: living in obesogenic environments and a lack of time. The EU-funded TUASPA project will investigate the associations between physical activity and the built environment in terms of time availability and time perception. The study will take place in the Spanish city of Barcelona where the physical activity of 150 employed adults will be monitored using GPS and accelerometer devices.
