Work Package 4 (WP4) is dedicated to establishing inclusive and equitable collaborations as well as fostering capacity-building spaces that involve implementation researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and diverse groups of adolescents in both Colombia and Mozambique.

To achieve these objectives, WP4 will focus on several key activities. It will involve building a network that includes public, private, and non-governmental organisations, creating structures that encourage active participation of stakeholders in various research phases, establishing a Young Advisory Board, and organising seminars, workshops, and a youth video contest. Additionally, interactive media, such as community radio, will be utilised to facilitate knowledge exchange and disseminate research findings.

The anticipated outcomes of WP4 encompass reciprocal knowledge exchange, the strengthening of collaborations between stakeholders, and the provision of accessible capacity-building opportunities in the realm of implementation research and evaluation. This holistic approach ensures that a diverse range of stakeholders is engaged, fostering a collaborative environment for impactful research and positive societal outcomes.


  1. The primary objective is to enhance research capacity across two distinct socio-spatial and health environments, enabling the effective implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of interventions aimed at promoting active mobility to and from school.
  2. Additionally, the goal is to establish fair and equitable collaboration among early and senior career researchers, as well as engage various stakeholders, with a particular focus on fostering collaboration between high-income countries (UK-US) and low- and middle-income countries (Mozambique-Colombia).
  3. Furthermore, the aim is to shed light on how active mobility interventions impact public health outcomes and demonstrate their effectiveness in 'real-world' settings.
