Sportify Cities

HOME

 

SPORTIFY CITIES is a global advocacy for urban sporting lifestyle and city sportification. In an effort to make cities healthier and more liveable in an era of rising urbanization rates and increasing densification of cities, it evaluates how sporty and active city residents utilise their urban space in predominantly large-sized cities of dominance and influence.

By integrating socio-cultural, economic, technological, environmental and political themes, SPORTIFY CITIES highlights the confluence of various aspects of city living and explores the prospects of creating recognisable and marketable sportified city brands. SPORTIFY CITIES also identifies influential cities with sporting tradition that could potentially initiate the popularisation of urban sporting culture elements across the developed and emerging world.
