UcanACT is an intersectoral initiative, joining together physiotherapists, local authorities, non-profit organizations, higher education and research institutions with the overall objective: to engage adult and senior citizens to practice physical activity (PA) as a tool for cancer prevention within public urban green spaces. 


UcanACT cancer prevention actions are not only good for health but also for spending control. Economic value and cost effectiveness of cancer prevention is an important aspect that should be considered especially in the post-COVID economic crises, faced by the EU and globally.
