 ## Abstract

Translating the Recently Updated Physical Activity Guidelines into High Impact, Science-based Messages: A Global Perspective 

Did you know that the recently updated United States Physical Activity Guidelines (PAG), include a game-changing recommendation that has profound messaging implications for our field? 

These updated Guidelines open the door for professionals across fields and countries to communicate in new ways that align with motivation and decision science, better permitting us to support people's psychological needs and ability to fit consistent movement into their lives.  

Attend this session if you want to learn more about these new science-based messages and how different countries are leveraging this exciting opportunity to boost population-level physical activity.
