The MOVING database is based on the MOVING framework, a tool designed to help policymakers, researchers and civil society organisations worldwide take action to increase levels of physical activity.

The MOVING framework is intended to be a logical and practical tool that allows the end user to identify a series of policy actions that can be taken as part of a comprehensive approach, categorised into distinct policy areas. The MOVING framework is comprised of four policy domains: ACTIVE SOCIETIES, ACTIVE ENVIRONMENTS, ACTIVE PEOPLE and ACTIVE SYSTEMS. However we do not collect policy actions relating to ACTIVE SYSTEMS.

In December 2020, we made some small refinements to the MOVING framework to improve the categorisation of policies in the different policy areas. The content of the updated framework remains the same – we've just tweaked how the policies are organised in the different letters of the framework. This was prompted by our learnings from conducting the policy scan and how users access information on the database.
