Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Derby a City on the Move (DaCotM) aims to tackle physical inactivity across Derby, UK and provided impetus and focus to utilising a whole systems approach to tackling inactivity. A consortium of partners work together on the project aiming to develop understanding of the way ‘systems thinking’ can be translated into action, and to inform future planning across Derby City. Methods:<\b>
A baseline review focused on the consultation with partners to establish programmes, policies and datasets in place across Derby City. This was translated into a visual image of the current scenario through the use of causal loop diagrams (CLD). A progress review will be conducted later in 2018 with the CLD being revised to reflect changes and adaptations across the system. Results:<\b>
The baseline review showed that DaCotM contributes to aspects of a whole systems approach, primarily through inter-personal interventions designed to support behaviour change. It acknowledges the need to look beyond current activity recognising the significance of the built and natural environment in providing opportunities to be active and also recognising the need for further insight into social norms. Conclusions: Recommendations for the creation of a whole systems approach have been provided specifically in relation to DaCotM and also beyond the life of the project. Derby City Physical Activity and Sport Strategy provides an opportunity to act on these recommendations and work towards a whole systems approach to tackling inactivity across Derby City. External funding details This work was funded through Sport England’s ‘Get Healthy, Get Active’ funding stream 2015-2018.
