On his recent trip to Australia VicHealth interviewed 8-80 cities Executive Director Gil Peñalosa about ways we can use public spaces to encourage people to be more active.

The former Commissioner of Parks, Sport and Recreation for the City of Bogota, Colombia, is a passionate international expert on creating vibrant cities and healthy communities. Gil’s recent presentation at VicHealth to our local government partners challenged contemporary thinking and provided inspiration to transform cities into places that are easily accessible, safe and enjoyable.
