Andy Burnham confirmed for ukactive's Active Uprising

Posted 15.05.2018

We’re big fans of Andy Burnham, the Mayor of Manchester, so were thrilled to hear he has been confirmed as a keynote speaker for ukactive’s Active Uprising conference on Thursday 21 June.

He will lead the debate, along with Great Britain’s most successful female Olympian Laura Kenny, EXOS founder Mark Verstegen, and Mike Collier, the man behind McLaren Applied Technology’s Human Performance Centre of Excellence. Our CEO, Sue Anstiss, will also chair a session on active communities in the afternoon.

The Mayor will address a cross-sector audience of more than 1,000 delegates at Manchester Central, sharing his views on the importance of physical activity in building cohesive communities, and underlining how local government is perfectly placed to help people build physical activity into their lives.

Active Uprising is a multi-day celebration of physical activity, which will bring together five major streams spanning the sector: SWEAT North, ActiveLab, Community, ukactive Kids and Ignite.

Tickets are still available here.
