The United Nations created 17 world development goals in 2016 with the overall aim of increasing peace and prosperity globally. Physical activity is related to several of the SDGs but is most closely related to SDG3 (good health and wellbeing).

According to the Global Action Plan on Physical Activity (2018-2030), “Physical activity has multiplicative health, social and economic benefits, and investment in policy actions to increase physical activity can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There are multiple direct and indirect pathways by which policies to promote physical activity through walking, cycling, sport, active recreation and play support 13 SDGs.”
