Aktive Organisation Advocacy

Physical activity matters to us

As advocates for sport, recreation and physical activity across Tāmaki Makaurau, our role is to champion the rights and needs of our growing, diverse region.

We believe it is critical to prioritise the support and provision for sport and recreation in plans for how and where Auckland will grow. This is particularly important given that the region’s current population of around 1.6 million people could grow by another 740,000 people over the next 30 years to reach 2.4 million (The Auckland Plan 2050, Auckland Council). 

We work hard to influence policy, funding and strategy - and to design and lead advocacy-related resources and campaigns for the sector.

We also share what we know in this space to help the sector and communities advocate effectively for their needs. Read our Advocacy Toolkit to learn how you can make your voice heard.
