What is the Premier's Council for Active Living?

The Premier's Council for Active Living (PCAL) aims to build and strengthen the physical and social environments in which communities engage in active living and healthy eating. It comprises senior representatives from across government, industry and the community sector. It was established in 2004 and follows on from the NSW Physical Activity Taskforce, which met between 1996 and 2002.

PCAL's activities are informed by better practice recommendations that highlight the need for high-level interagency collaboration as a key component of a comprehensive strategy to increase health promoting physical activity and healthy eating. 

PCAL's focus has been on initiating policy change through the provision of strategic advice and advocacy.
