Milton Keynes has been named a European City of Sport (ECOS) for 2020 by ACES Europe (the European Cities and Capitals of Sport Federation). ACES Europe is a non-profit association which champions the use of sport to improve people’s quality of life, physical and mental wellbeing. Each year it awards a Capital and several Cities of Sport.
In January 2020, Milton Keynes Council launched the #MK20in20 campaign to encourage physical activity among all age groups and abilities. However, now that most of us are staying at home they have recently launched the #MK20in20 ‘at home’ campaign.
The #MK20in20 ‘at home’ campaign has been launched to encourage people to still be physically active and incorporate activity into everyday routines. Simple activities like climbing the stairs, walking around the garden or a local walk can all contribute to staying active.
