Rebecca Crawford the Bodyurbanist (AUS)

Dr. Rebecca Crawford founded the Body Urbanism Movement; she wants cities that make people move more and to meaningfully engage and challenge the human body toward healthy ageing. Public space and art are key ingredients of that recipe! Rebecca has helped people move better for over thirty years as a human movement scientist and a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist. She was awarded her doctorate on the spine, and now leads research discovering how muscles age. Rebecca knows that much of what ails us can’t be fixed with medicine, but can be improved with movement. Just as ‘sitting is the new smoking’, public space can be the new health-carer!
