Nesta and The Observer name Beat the Street as a New Radical 2016
Intelligent Health has been recognised for its innovative approach to improving health after Beat the Street has been highlighted as one of Nesta and The Observer’s 50 New Radicals in 2016.
New Radicals is a search led by Nesta, the UK’s innovation foundation, and The Observer to find the top people, projects and organisations offering innovative ways to tackle social challenges. It was launched in 2012 and was run again in 2014. A panel of judges featuring notable figures from business, charity and technology have distilled over 1,000 entries into a list of just fifty new ideas which are making a positive difference in the UK.
Since launching the very first Beat the Street programme in 2012, Intelligent Health has helped over 400,000 people worldwide become more physically active through fun, free, community campaigns. Intelligent Health is dedicated to increasing physical activity and improving the health of communities across the world.
Dr William Bird, CEO and Founder of Intelligent Health, said: “Intelligent Health is committed to getting communities active all across the globe. Increasing physical activity not only improves health and wellbeing but can save public money and improve our environment.
“Our innovative and positive approach and our excellent team of staff has helped make a difference in dozens of towns and cities in the UK. We are always looking for new ways to get people moving so we are incredibly proud to be highlighted by Nesta as one of fifty New Radicals of 2016.”
