What is it
One of the key barriers to partaking in physical activity or sport is a lack of knowledge regarding what the local opportunities are to be active.
We are developing a new digital activity finder called Active Birmingham.
We want to help those who are providing amazing opportunities like you connect with more people and help raise the awareness of the amazing work and range of opportunities you provide. We currently have over 2,500 opportunities that have been published already, but we would like to ensure we capture as much local community-based activity as possible.
What’s the benefits
Whilst many activity finders rely on diligent manual input from an administrator (and thus are quickly rendered out of date), the new platform will use open data feeds directly from you utilising activity provider booking systems/websites to ensure that users can see live activity opportunities from a variety of sources. Users will also directly book and enquire onto activities where appropriate.
We would like to work with you – some of whom will be completely new to this and some who will already have some experience in the area.
The ambition is that this is a l tool for both Birmingham Citizens and positively raises the awareness of the rich and diverse physical activity and sport offering schools, youth, and health professionals across the city
