Our role

The Premier’s Physical Activity Council (PPAC) was established in 2001 to address physical inactivity in Tasmania. Resourced through Communities, Sport and Recreation Tasmania, PPAC facilitates a coordinated, cross-sector and collaborative response to increasing and improving opportunities for physical activity in Tasmania. This is done in accordance with the vision and goals outlined in Tasmania’s plan for physical activity 2011-2021.

The plan was developed in consultation with the Tasmanian community and sets a unifying direction and framework for action. It is recognised that Tasmania faces a long-term task in changing community attitudes towards physical activity, but it is encouraging to note the public support provided for a number of physical activity initiatives and events around the state.

PPAC’s priorities include key focus areas that are identified in Tasmania’s plan for physical activity 2011-2021, as well as core activities and participation in external working groups. This page summarises PPAC's vision, mission and goals.

Our vision

'All Tasmanians experience and enjoy the many benefits of regular physical activity'

Our mission

For our Premier, PPAC provides a coordinated, cross-sector and collaborative response to increasing and improving opportunities for physical activity in Tasmania.

Our goals

  1. Become a community that values and supports physical activity
  2. Create built and natural environments that enable and encourage physical activity
  3. Develop partnerships that build and share knowledge and resources
  4. Increase opportunities for all Tasmanians to be physically active where they live, work and play

By taking the initiative to make physical activity an integral component of our lives, Tasmania as a whole will benefit through improved health, social interaction, a healthy environment and a strong community.
