The theme of the 2014 conference, "Niche to Norm,” recognizes the importance of advancing active living from an emerging research field with limited results and impact to well-accepted findings that regularly guide decision-making across sectors to create more active communities.

Active Living Research is a new field of research, but it has been growing rapidly and having impact. Environmental and policy changes made to increase physical activity used to be rare, but they are increasingly more common. For example, Complete Streets ordinances have been adopted in hundreds of communities; thousands of schools are implementing evidence-based policies and programs to increase activity; and WalkScore helps home buyers and renters find walkable neighborhoods. At the 2014 ALR Conference we want to highlight efforts to take evidence-based interventions mainstream.
