  4. 4. Shared Systemwide Learning Building evidence into policy & practice • UK is a world leader in science advice to policy • Policy Profession promoting approaches to make best use of evidence and involve people from broad range of disciplines • What Works Network organisations are an effective knowledge use mechanism* and are being taken up in Canada, New Zealand & Australia. *https://whatworkswellbeing.org/product/48172/ https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-05414-4 Synthesis requires brokerage at the interface of public life and academia.

  15. 15. Research perspective Evidence could be better! “Surprisingly, despite thousands of sport and dance interventions taking place across the UK, in the published literature from the past decade, there is limited good quality evidence, and very little conducted in the UK. This points to a need for better structures for measuring, collecting and using evaluations to build national and local evidence bases.”
